The members of the Kumasi Youth Association have locked up the office of the Daily Guide newspaper in Kumasi in the Ashanti region.

The youth group invaded the media house because of its report on the recent banking issue which mentioned Otumfuo Osei Tutu.

According to the youth in Kumasi this tarnishes the image of their chief.

The youth are demanding that Daily Guide retracts its story and apologises to Otumfuo for the publication.


A reporter for the paper in Kumasi Ernest Kofi Adu told Accra-based Starr FM that they will only give them access to their office after they retract the publication.

“We came to the office this morning to see that our office has been locked by the guys who call themselves Kumasi Youth Association. They say until we retract our story and go to the Manhyia to apologise to the King, they will permanently shut down the office.”

The Asantehene was reported in a British newspaper to have given £200,000 as well as $200,000 with consecutive serial numbers to a banker, Mr Arthur, to be deposited on his behalf at the Ghana International Bank Plc.


This reportedly led to the dismissal of Arthur. However, he argued that he did not conduct due diligence before depositing the money because he was a subject of the Asantehene.

He is challenging his dismissal and the matter has become a subject of litigation before an employment tribunal in the UK.
