The Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has destooled the Chief of Adumoa in the Afigya Kwabre District of the Ashanti Region.
The destooled chief was alleged to be involved in multiple land disputes with other chiefs and violating some customary procedures.
The Asantehene had noted that Ababio had been given warnings before eventually being destooled.
According to reports, when delivering his verdict during a sitting of the Kumasi Traditional Council on Monday, August 14, 2023, the Asantehene said Ababio did not listen to the warnings.
Nana Osei Tiri Ababio's royal slippers were removed upon the Asantehene’s order.
This destoolment will be the third in three months, with the latest being four days ago.

YEN.com.gh previously reported that the Asantehene sacked one of his sub-chiefs, Nana Saforo Koto of Bekwai-Abodom over illegal mining allegations.
The destooled chief was unable to convince the powerful chief of the Asante people that he was not complicit in 20 cases about his alleged involvement in illegal mining.

He also said until recently, illegal small-scale mining had been ongoing in parts of the country for years, yet the environment saw no pollution.
