The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has issued a summons to one of his sub-chiefs, Kwaprahene Baffour Adugyemfu Kumani.

According to some media reports, the deadline for his appearance is set for Friday, November 3, 2023, and he must make the appearance through the Akwamu division.

In a video shared by Opemsuo Radio, an affiliate of Manhyia, Otumfuo expressed his frustration, stating the following in Twi:

"Kwaprahene knows why I'm seeking him. He is well aware that I'm seeking him regarding the land issue. He is avoiding me by claiming illness, thinking he can outsmart me."

Another video shared by Royal Palace Multimedia on Facebook, dated October 30, 2023, provides some context to Kwaprahene's situation and the potential risk of being removed from his position if he fails to appear before the Asantehene.

In this video, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is seen confronting the sub-chief about the improper sale of land to a woman.

The visibly perturbed sub-chief attempts to explain himself, but his responses appear to further agitate the Asantehene. Otumfuo warns him, stating:

"Sir, I will depose you if you are not cautious... These are the foolish acts I detest."

He proceeds to highlight the injustice of taking land from a woman based solely on her subject status, emphasising that being a chief does not grant him immunity.

The Asantehene delivered all his remarks in the Twi language.

He recently destooled one of his sub-chiefs for actions deemed unacceptable.
