Royal family pleads with Asantehene to investigate sale of 800 plots


The Oyoko Royal Family of Sabin-Akrofrom near Kumasi has appealed to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to investigate the sale of 800 building plots in the town and those who benefited.

The transaction was said to have been carried out within the last 24 months.

The Abusuapanin (Head of Family), Opanin Kwadwo Nsiah, said they wanted the name of their late chief, who was wrongly accused of the sale of the plots to be cleared.

Nana Kwaku Duah, 79, is reported to have died from shock following the accusation and his subsequent removal from the stool by the Asantehene.

He reigned for 36 years and the Abusuapanin insisted that throughout this period, the late chief sold less than 60 plots.

He told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that the family had incontrovertible evidence that the 800 plots at the centre of controversy were given out to developers by officials at the Asantehene’s Lands Secretariat.

This comes on the heels of the dissolution of the Secretariat for acts of impropriety by the Asantehene.

Opanin Nsiah said until the truth came out and the innocence of their kinsman established, they would decline the offer by the Asantehene to honour Nana Duah with a royal funeral.
