The Okyeman traditional council has charged Ashanti regional NDC Secretary Kwame Zu 98 sheep and 98 bottles of schnapps over a statement he made about Okyehene Amoatia Ofori Panin which did not go down well with the people of Akyem Abuakwa and its environs.
During a demonstration by the coalition for National Sovereignty in Kumasi some months ago, The Ashanti Regional NDC Secretary was heard making a wild allegation that for the intervention of ex-president Mahama, Okyehene and his people would still be “drinking with sheep and cows” from one source.
The comment was condemned by all which led to a mammoth demonstration by the people and chiefs of Akyem Abuakwa. The Okyeman traditional council kicked out an apology later written by the Ashanti NDC Secretariat as the council requested for a ritual pacification rite to be performed to appease the Okyehene or be banned from all official functions organised under the auspices of the Ofori Panin stool.
A highly powered delegation from the NDC led by its Chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo,Victor Smith,Betty Mould Iddrisu,Samuel Yaw Adusei and some other bigwigs today visited the Ofori Panin fie paid a courtesy call on the Okyehene today.
