The Ga state is currently filled with confusion as the Ga kingmakers last weekend installed a new Mantse, Nii Tackie Obli II.
This new chief brings the number of claimants to the stool to four, since the death of the Ga Mantse in 2004, Boni Nii Amugi II.
According to the Abola Piam kingmakers, Nii Obli is the legitimate chief of the Ga State, ending the reign of the late king Tackie Tawiah II known in private life as Dr Joe Blankson, and the current Ga Mantse, Boni Nii Tackie Adama Latse II.
The two other claimants to the stool are Ayittey Canada, now deceased and Dr Kelvin Tackie Abia.
This development follows days after a team of police officials were dispatched to monitor the Palace of the Ga Mantse, after clashes between two factions last Tuesday.
The clashes happened as result of a group storming the palace grounds during the induction ceremony of the Ga Mantse, Nii Adama Latse as the President of the Ga traditional council, as per orders from an Accra High Court that the said ceremony be conducted within 7 days.
It took more than two hours for police personnel present to stop the armed men in the factions from firing shots at each other.
The stool father of Abola Piam We, Nii Okai Osiahene IV, said that they had the right to nominate and install a chief for the Ga State after the death of Nii Amugi, a right which according to him had been blocked by the faction supporting Nii Teiko Tsuru We.
