The Youth of the Nkoranza in the Bono East Region have prevented one Mr Kwaku Soroh and his accompanied Police officers and Military men from entering Nkoranzaman Palace.
This, according to them is because Mr. Soroh’s claim that he is the Omanhene of the community is not true.
Pieces of information gathered from the Nkoranzaman community indicate that there was heavy Police and military presence in the community yesterday around 3-4am which alarmed them that something unpleasant will happen.
And as they imagined, they saw the Self-acclaimed Omanhene trying to enter the Omanhene palace of Nkoranza so they gathered themselves to stop him because for all they know, the matter is in the hands of Otumfo Osei Tutu II and also in court challenging the validity of His Kingship.
For their information the court has not ruled neither the Otumfo has spoken on the matter so they see no reason why Mr Soroh and the security forces are trying to enter the Palace. To them, they will not allow anyone to enter the Chief’s Palace until the Court gives it verdict on the matter.
The Nkoranza Traditional Council has been without a paramount chief following the death of Okatakyie Agyemang Kodom IV, three years ago.
The decision on who to succeed the late chief has become a problem, leading to the closure of the Nkoranza chief’s palace.
The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, who oversees the Nkoranza Traditional Area, has been trying to resolve the stalemate.
But even before the Asantehene could settle the matter, Kwaku Soro has been enstooled as the new chief, heightening tension in the town.
Queenmother of the Nkoranza Traditional Council, Nana Adutwumwaa Kudaa Kani II, at a news conference in Nkoranza, questioned the legitimacy of Kwaku Soro, indicating he has not been endorsed by the kingmakers in the Traditional Area.
She reminded inhabitants of Nkoranza and its environs that the enstoolment of Kwaku Soro by the Ankobeahene is against the customary rites of the Nkoranza Traditional Council.
“I have not seen such thing before. I was well trained and I respect our culture and do not go against our culture. When I am enstooling a Chief I involve everyone. So I am surprised that Nkoransa do not know the customs.
“If I do not come out to say something about what they did, they would say I know something about it. I know anything about it; it is before Otumfuo,” Nana Kani II said.
