”On March 19, 2017, at about 10 a.m., His Royal Majesty, Obadiah John Osumu, King of Akenfa-Epie Community raised an alarm about herdsmen activities in Akenfa Community.

”Consequently, an Assistant Commissioner of Police led a team of policemen to the scene.

”The team noticed heavy movement of cattle in the area but diverted them to avoid destruction of farmlands,” he said.

Butswat urged community leaders in the state to maintain peace and always partner with the Police to prevent crime in their communities.
