Trouble is brewing in the Assin District of the Central region following a decision by the police to hand over the black stool to one of the feuding factions in a chieftaincy dispute in the area at the blind side of the other gate.
The Asakyire Akrofuom Royal family at Assin Akrofrom has issued a two-week ultimatum to the police to produce the Black stool which was in custody for protection or face their wrath.
The aggrieved gate are threatening to resort to violence to retrieve the stool from the other gate at the expiry of the ultimatum if the police do not retrieve it from the other feuding gate as their possession of the said black stool gives that gate legitimacy over the throne over them.
The stool which was handed over to the police for upkeep by the court in 2009 due to the protracted chieftaincy and court issue has since last year resurfaced in the hands of the other gate which the Asakyire family finds an act of betrayal of the peace accord struck by the court.
The spokesperson for the aggrieved family Nana Sarfo Amankwaa speaking with Ultimate News’ Central regional Correspondent Kwaku Baah-Acheamfour at a press conference said they will do everything within their power to retrieve the Black Stool.
