The Bole District Magistrate Court on Thursday remanded into police custody a herdsman who inflicted cutlass wounds on a farmer at Seripe.
The incident occurred when the cattle of the herdsman destroyed the victim’s cassava and yam farm in the Savannah region.
This resulted in a confrontation between the two men of which the herdsman allegedly inflicted cutlass wounds on the farmer.
A nephew of the victim, Kwabena Jeremiah, told Adom News that he received a distress call from another farmer reporting the attack on his uncle.
He rushed to the farm, saw his injured uncle unconscious and took him to the Bole district hospital for medical attention.
When the victim regained consciousness, he described his attacker to the police leading to his arrest.
Jeremiah has since appealed to the government and local chiefs to intervene and address the ongoing tensions between Fulani herdsmen and farmers in the community.
Meanwhile, the suspect is scheduled to re-appear before the court presided over by His Worship, Edward Essel on Tuesday, February 13.
