The Executive Director of the West African Network for Peacebuilding (WANEP), Chukwuemeka Eze, is calling on government to engage herdsmen in the country in order to restore peace.
A joint police-military team in the Operation Cowleg exercise has been working to flush out nomadic herdsmen accused of killing four indigenes in recent times from Agogo in the Ashanti Region.
The Agogo Traditional Council has given a 31st March deadline for the herdsmen to leave the area.
The executive director for WANEP, however, believes issuing an ultimatum to the herdsmen is not the way to go. He suggests a collaborative effort between various West African states to develop a comprehensive plan to take care of the situation.
