3 confirmed dead from shocks after dethronement of monarch


Following the announcement that Ghanaian monarch, Atwimahene, Nana Antwi Agyei Brempong II, has been dethroned after being found guilty of gross misconduct and insubordination by the Kumasi Traditonal Council, no fewer than three persons have been declared dead from shock as a result of the news.
The proclamation was made by the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II on Monday.
Report has it that the monarch who has single-handedly catered for development schemes in his entire area is in court over a parcel of land, Anwaa in the Atwima Kwanwoma district of Ashanti region,  Kwanwomahene, Nana Amponsa Kwaa has claimed was his.
The case which was before the Kumasi Traditional Council chaired by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II was adjourned to April 2018, for settlement with a directive by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, that no party should step on the land in dispute until they are told to do so.
After Otumfuo's order, Nana Antwi Agyei Brempong II went to the land to install an Odikro, leading to gross misconduct and insobordination as well flouted the Great Oath of Otumfuo which is referred to as (Ntam Kessie).
"I told you to live the land in dispute till I return from my trip abroad but due to insobordination you chose to do whatever you like but remember that there is only one Asantehene" Otumfuo revealed.
Speaking to OTEC news Isaac Nsiah Foster, some natives of Atwima traditional area confirmed three persons-Tony miner at Tarkwa, Maame Gyamfua and Antie Maggie have all been pronounced dead after collapsing when they heard the announcement of the destoolment of Atwimahene Nana Antwi Agyei Brempong II by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
Otumfuo said some chiefs who are closed to him wanted to use his name to suppress others through dubious means without his consent.
He therefore cautioned other chiefs to eschew tendencies that would undermine his(Asantehene) authority, adding Atwimahene's case should be an example to all.
Otumfuo delegated 5 members from the Kumasi Traditional Council led by Nana Bonsu to ensure that former Nana Antwi Agyei Brempong II performs a proper handing over of all the traditional properties that were in trusted in his care as Atwimahene on Tuesday 17, April 2018.
Atwimahene, Nana Antwi Agyei Brempong II, was destooled on Monday 16, April 2018 at Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.
