The Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Council says it will deal with the current tension at Nsawam-Adoagyiri over a claim of ownership of the area by some Chiefs of Akyem Kotoku.
There has been growing tension in the Nsawam-Adoagyiri township over a planned installation of a new chief in Adoagyiri.
The Ghana Police Service in its quest to maintain peace and order at Adoagyiri secured a restraining order, restraining some principal Kingmakers of Adoagyiri and the Akyem Abuakwa traditional council from installing a new chief in the town.
The police have further secured the same restraining orders from the Nsawam High Court restraining the embattled Adoagyirihene from holding a durbar outside his palace or residence in commemoration of this year’s Odwira Festival.
The situation continues to pose a serious threat to the Adoagyiri township and traders who ply their businesses in the area as well as residents who live in fear of communal clashes.
Meanwhile, the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Council in a statement signed by its secretary D. M. Ofori Atta says it will set all records relating to the Nsawam-Adoagyiri lands on March 13, 2023, and show that Nsawam-Adoagyiri at all times holds allegiance to the Akyem Abuakwa Traditional Council.
