Otumfuo destools another Ashanti chief

Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, has destooled another chief in the Ashanti region in less than a week after he destooled the Akwamuhene of the Kumasi Traditional Council, for flouting the great oath of Asanteman, one of the pillars of the Asante Kingdom and found guilty of 10 different charges.

The Chief of Ahenkro, near Offinso, Nana Ahenkro Sei Ababio III has also been sanctioned for showing disrespect to the King by defying orders barring chiefs from taking all chieftaincy and land disputes to the courts.

Nana Ahenkro Sei Ababio III is also accused of arrogating to himself an "overlord" status though he is 'nobody'.

Asantehene who spoke through his linguist, Baffuor Osei Kwame Kantankrankyi, said Ahenkro Sei should blame his insubordination and disrespect for his predicament.

The reign of Nana Ahenkro Sei Ababio III who was enstooled in 1999 ended at a traditional council meeting at Manhyia Palace on Monday, June 24, 2019, when Otumfuo Osei Tutu II delivered judgement.
