It has been revealed that Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II has one particular costume dating as far back as 1715 which makes him impregnable to metallic weapons such as bullets and knives.

A story of the old but powerful costume was revealed on the official Facebook handle of 3FM 92.7 as part of celebrations to mark Ghana's independence month.

The 'magical' Otumfou Osei Tutu's costume which is reportedly known as batakari kɛseɛ (traditional war amour) is said to have been bequeathed to the then Otumfour by Yaa-Naa of Dagbon.

It is reported that the presentation of the warrior dress was made to the Ashantehene Osei Tutu when he invited Yaa-Naa Gariba for peace talks in 1715.

The costume looks like a popular dress that is known to be worn by popular traditional fetish priests.

Although nobody might have ever tried to test the power of the costume, it is strongly believed that when Otumfuo wears this traditional war amour, no metal in the form of a bullet or knife could penetrate his body.
