"The things that are happening lately here are not good for the region and there is no traditional leader who will be happy with such developments," Otumfuo Manwerehene Baffour Osei Brentuo Hyiaman has said.

Residents have rejected an autopsy report which indicates that the deceased died of heart failure.

According to them, the man was beaten to death by the police. This has created tension between the police and residents in the area.

Otumfuo Manwerehene Baffour Osei Brentuo Hyiaman has told Kumasi-based Ultimate FM that “the regional security council can take it up for investigations to take place to get to the bottom of the matter. If it’s the Police versus the youth, the Police cannot come in as judges in their own case, there should be a third body and that third body should be able to cool tempers.“But paramount in all these is the peace that we need in this region. The things that are happening lately here are not good for the region and there is no traditional leader who will be happy with such developments. There appears to be some heat somewhere and we should be in the position to resolve those matters as we go into the polls in November,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament for Manhyia North, Collins Amankwa, has said he is not satisfied with the autopsy report exonerating the police officers.

The MP said he and his constituents will officially state their position on the matter after the one week memorial of the deceased, Osei Tawiah.
