Minister's husband assaults chief at Palace with gun

The reason for the commotion was as a result of his supposed indiscipline attitude exhibited in front of both the Omanhene.

The reason for the commotion was as a result of his supposed indiscipline attitude exhibited in front of both the Omanhene, the western regional minister, MCE for Nzema East and the Member of Parliament Madam Catherine Afeku last Sunday when the MP (Catherine Afeku), led by the Regional Minister went to beg for forgiveness from Awulae Adyefi Kwame after betraying him (Awulae Agyefi) to the Presidency late last year.

Madam Afeku in 2017, according to Awulae Adyefi Kwame lured him under the pretext of being invited by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo regarding his opposition to Dr Ben Asante’s appointment as the Ghana Gas Chief Executive, which later turned to be a stab in his [Awulae] back by his lovely daughter Madam Catherine Afeku for fabricating lies against him.


This betrayal did not go down well with Awulae Agyefi after regretting for her sins.

She [Ms Afeku] was then first led by the President of Western Regional House of Chiefs Ogyeaahoho Yaw Gyebi and T3t3tr3 of Wassa Traditional Area to beg on her behalf that later ended up in a confrontation.

The second move which led to the melee was after he threatened to deal with Nana Koomson, one of the sub-chief of Nsein Traditional Council for ordering him to leave the palace for his continuous noise making and yelling at the elders.

The reason for Mr Seth Afeku’s insubordination was as a result of the demands from Awulae Adyeifi Kwame which were made up of two sheep’s, bottles of schnapps, a cash amount of two thousand cedis as a sign of accepting Catherine Afeku's plea for lying and betraying exposing him to ridicule to the presidency.

This did not go down with the Minister's husband, which he vehemently yelled at the chiefs leading to his exit from the palace leaving behind the Regional Minister Dr Afriyie, the MCE Frank Okpeyen, and some NPP party supporters.


Mr Afeku later attacked Nana Koomson with a pistol threatening to shoot him and was prevented by the irate youth who nearly lynched Mr Afeku but managed to escape.

The chiefs and the Assemblyman of Nsein, Kofi Agyefi Kwame after the incidence drove to the police station at Axim to lodge a complaint where Mr Afeku after getting a tip off stormed the police station to give Nana Koomson two slaps. He claimed that the party [NPP] is in power and nobody can touch him.

Madam Afeku later rushed to the scene and apologised to the chief for the assault whereas, Awulae Adyeifi Kwame lodged a formal complaint to the Regional CID office for an assault.

The office of the Minister has therefore appealed to the irate youth of Nsein to forgive his husband and promised to bear the cost of the medical bills of the chief.
