The Peki Traditional Council and the three Royal families of Peki namely Nyangamangu, the Amega Kofi and the Tutu Brempong families has refuse to bury their dead Chiefif their feud is not well settle. 

The latest twist to the issue is that the Dihyefia of Peki (Head of Royals) and Head of the Nyangamangu Family, Togbe Kantamanto C.C. Fitih, has, through his lawyer, written a letter to the Office of the President and ministries, as well as institutions, notifying them that the burial of the late chief cannot take place because the rightful procedure in matters of such nature has not been followed.

 Togbe Fitih is appealing to the authorities to stop unauthorised persons from removing the corpse of the late Togbega from the Peki Government Hospital.

A letter written by Mr B.B. Bakattah, counsel for Togbe Fitih, indicated that his client was installed by Togbega Dei as the Regent of Peki at a public ceremony at Peki Blengo on April 18, 2009 when Togbega Dei’s health was failing.

“My instructions are that during the lifetime of Togbega, he honoured our client with the title “Kantamanto”. This honour was acclaimed on the floor of the Parliament of the Third Republic of Ghana when my client was the Leader of the Majority,” it said.

It said Togbega Dei later made it abundantly clear to his immediate family and the Royal Family that Togbe Fitih should be in charge of all his affairs.
