THE chief of Adansi Akrofuom, Nana Osei Asibey Bonsu, has cautioned his people against acts that would portray the town as lawless.
Nana Bonsu expressed regret that the town, which was known for peace and self-help development, was gradually taking a U-turn because of chieftaincy.
Speaking to the Daily Graphic in response to a recent development where police had to beef up security in the town for the burial of a member of the royal family, the late Fanny Theresa Rigg Steward, aka Auntie Awura Abena, Nana Bonsu said, “We cannot allow such situations to tarnish the image of our town”.
He accused one Kwaku Nyame, who he said, had been portraying himself illegally as head of the royal family for the presence of the police.
“He misinformed the police about a court injunction on the burial of our late sister, and this prompted the Buffalo Unit to come to Akrofuom,” he said.
Nana Bonsu produced a letter written by Mr Nyame on June 7, 1995, in which he (Nyame) informed the then Akrofuomhene, Nana Okai Ababio, about his abdication as family head.
He said it was therefore strange that the same person could now turn to declare himself as head of family, saying such acts could disturb the peace of the area.
Nana Bonsu thus called on the people to be wary of characters whose activities were dangerous to the peace and development of Akrofuom.
