THERE WAS NO INSTALLATION OF A CHIEF – WITNESSES

Two key witnesses in the ongoing trial on the chieftaincy dispute concerning the Aketenchie stool have stated that there was no installation of a chief in Akentenchie.

This revelation was made this morning at the Sekondi District Court as the case was called.

Three persons are standing trial for allegedly outdooring one Ekow Prah as a chief without the endorsement of the king makers.

Prosecuting the case, Sergeant Amoh called the Abusapayin of Akataenchie, one Kwame Yafo, who in his evidence in chief led substantive evidence to the fact that as the head of the royal family, he has not endorsed anybody to be enstooled as the chief of Akatenchie.

His evidence was corroborated by the second prosecution witness, Sarfohene Sipi of Akatenkchie, who posited that as the Sarfohene for Akatenchie traditional area “whenever the family chooses a person to be enstooled, they present the person to me, and l, in turn, present him to Omanhene Badu Bonsu. But as l speak, no such thing has been done. So l find it hard to believe that Ekow Prah goes about calling himself has the chief of Akatenchie “

According to the witnesses, claims being made by one Ekow Prah to the extent that he is the legitimate chief of Akatenchie cannot be true.

The court presided over by His Worship Jonathan Avogo adjourned the case to the 23rd of March for the prosecution to call its third witness.
