Veep, Kufuor, Otumfuo, Togbe Afede, IGP et al mourn Okuapehene

It is not known when the late chief would be buried, but indications are that with the burial service, the next process will be the burial.

Former President John Kufuor, Vice President Kwesi Amissah Arthur, Inspector General of Police (IGP) John Kudalor and some prominent chiefs all payed their last respect to the late paramount chief Oseadeeyo Addo Dankwa III.

Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu and Togbe Afede XIV also graced the final funeral rites of the Paramount chief of the area.

The burial rites, which began last Sunday with the observance of some rights at the Okuapeman palace by the Okyenhene, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin, will today move to the Presbyterian College of Education School Park to accommodate the large number of mourners who will throng Akropong.

There will also be a thanksgiving service on Sunday, February 7, and final burial rites on Monday, February 8, at the forecourt of the Okuapehene’s Palace in Akropong.

The venue of the burial is also not known, but it will be at a Royal Mausoleum.
