Accra-based Joy FM reports that the group of NPP executives dropped to their knees as they begged the king to in a bid to suppress his anger.

The report indicates that Otumfuo’s linguist, Baffour Kantankrakyi, had to step in to intercede on behalf of the NPP bigwigs.

The linguist pleaded with the Ashanti overlord to “pardon” and “forgive” his grandchildren who, at that point, where still on their knees seeking mercy from the king.
