- Okyehene Osaagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin II was involved in a car accident over the weekend
- It all happened when a tipper truck crashed into one of the vehicles among the convoy
- The chief is believed to be fine after the incident
The Okyehene Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin II suffered a car accident over the weekend while returning home after meeting the president at the Head of State International Gulf Tournament.
YEN.com.gh has learned that the Okyenhene's convoy, experienced the incident along the main Kumasi-Accra Highway close to the Chad Mortuary.
It all happened when a tipper truck crushed into the last vehicle of the convoy leaving it to veer off the street into the shoulders of the highway.Fortunately enough, there were no casualties involved as the Okyenhene is believed to be doing well.
Okyenhene is the title of the king of Akyem Abuakwa (also styled Okyeman), an ancient kingdom in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
Meanwhile, the Okyenhene's meet-up with the president and the Asantehene has shot down suspicions of a rift between the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu ll and the Okyehene, Amoatia Ofori Panin ll on Ghana’s chieftaincy system.
The Accra-Kumasi highway remains one of the most dangerous highways in Ghana today with most ghastly road accidents occurring on that lane. There are calls for the road to be expanded into a dual-carrier road so as to prevent future happenings of crashes. This is the first time a chief of this calibre has suffered a crash on the said lane.
