The failure of the Ghana police service to ensure peace and order in the chieftaincy affairs in Kwabenya in the Greater Accra region is escalating tension in the area.
This comes in the wake of allegations that one Theophilus Ankamah Aryee, a self-acclaimed a chief in the area attacked the paramount chief of the area, Nii Abbey Okanfrah III, with his men without any provocation.
It took the intervention of some elders to save the life of Nii Okamfrah III, according to reports.
The Daily Graphic in 2012 carried a story that called for the arrest of Theophilus Amkamah Aryee over a bad act.
Report indicates that the action of the self-acclaimed chief has forced the substantive Chief to vacate the palace for his personal protection.
Narrating the issue to journalists, Nii Okamfrah III, described the action of the self -acclaimed chief as unlawful and way disturbing the long standing peace enjoying by the chiefs and people of the area.
According to him, he was in his palace when Mr. Ankamah entered unannounced and warned him to vacate the palace if he wants peace.
Nii Okamfrah III, said he inherited the paramountcy from his late father legally and didn’t know why an unknown person should attack him out of nothing.
He therefore expressed worry over how the police failed to intervene after an official report was made at the head office in Accra.
“The youth in the area are ready to defend me if the Police and other authorities fail to arrest and prosecute the accused person within next three days,” he indicated.
