Photos: Hundreds welcome Otumfuo at airport

Hundreds of people on Thursday October 20, 2017 gathered at the Kumasi Airport to welcome the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

The Asantehene who returned from Brazil was welcomed by some politicians such as Henry Nana Boakye popularly called ‘Nana B’, Sammi Awuku, Stephen Amoah a.k.a Sticker, Justin Koduah traditional rulers, security capos and youth groups.

The Asantehene was in the news after his transaction with Ghana International Bank.


An official of the Ghana International Bank in the UK Mark Arthur has been dismissed after the traditional ruler of the Asante king, summoned him to his multimillion-pound residence in Henley-on-Thames and handed him a bag containing almost £200,000 in sterling as well as $200,000 in US currency for saving at the bank.

The aggrieved banker, from New Barnet, Hertfordshire, a dual citizen of the UK and Ghana, drove to his own home with the cash and then took it in an Uber taxi to the bank’s City offices for deposit in the king’s account, he told an employment tribunal. Authorities sacked him for allegedly flouting banking laws.
