- The Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has summoned a subchief chief to appear before him in two weeks or be sacked from his stool
- The summoned chief, Kwaprahene Baffour Adugyemfu Kumani, has been accused of fraudulent sale of stool lands
- Baffour Adugyemfu Kumani reportedly sold four plots of land to a man at Kwaprah and reclaimed the lands later on
Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has threatened one of his subchiefs with destoolment over allegations of fraudulent land sales.
The Asantehene has summoned the chief, Kwaprahene Baffour Adugyemfu Kumani, to appear before him in two weeks or be sacked.
"In two weeks, if he doesn't show up, he should abdicate the throne and all the elders under him are also summarily sacked,” the Asantehene said.
Baffour Adugyemfu Kumani reportedly sold four plots of land to a man at Kwaprah who serves as Chief.
After securing all the documents covering the four plots, the young man travelled to Australia and spent a few years there.
When he returned, the Kwaprahene claimed two of the plots because he was developing them.
Later, the Chief sued the man in court and claimed the remaining two plots, compelling the man to run to other traditional leaders.
