Some three Fulani herdsmen residents in Kintampo in the Bono East Region were on Thursday, September 19, 2019, attacked by unidentified men near a village called Adumanu on the Kunsu- Kintampo road.
One of the victims, Sulemana Amadu, 30, was shot dead at Seine and was dragged to a nearby bush and buried in an unmarked grave.
The other two, Alhassan Kassim, 20 and Iddrisu Adama, 12 who also received beatings and managed to escape lynching were sent to the Kintampo Municipal Hospital for treatment.
Spokesperson for the deceased family, Mr. Musah Ali who spoke with Angel Mid-Day News said, one of the victims, Alhassan Kassim who has since been treated and discharged from the Kintampo Municipal Hospital said the three of them were on board two separate motor bikes heading to a community called Kunsu to take care of their cattle.
According to him, Alhassan who was riding alone on one of the motorbikes first met the group. He was asked to stop and he obliged.
The group then told him about a certain robbery case they claimed happened on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 which they suspected was carried out by Fulanis.
According to him, he was subjected to severe beatings, and his new Honda motorbike, a mobile phone and an amount of GHC 800 was taken from him after which he was chased away by the group.
Narrating his part through his uncle, the other escapee, Adama who was on board the other motorbike with Sulemana, the deceased said they were also stopped by the group and dragged to the bush.
Adama who managed to escape, later heard a gunshot from behind and suspected his brother Sulemana was the one being shot at. He then ran to a village nearby and informed his father via telephone about what happened.
The father, upon receiving the information, quickly reported to the Kintampo Divisional Police.
The police upon reaching the scene, found out that Sulemana had been killed, dragged to the bush and buried.
The body of the deceased was deposited at the Kintampo Municipal Hospital’s morgue and released on Friday, September 20 to the family for burial in accordance with Islamic custom.
