A strong Chieftaincy dispute is inevitable at Hwenampori, a suburb of Sefwi Bibiani in the Western North Region.
The royal family (Aduana Abusua) of the community claim the Paramount Chief (Omanhene) of Bibiani Anwiaso is conniving with another family to install a new chief in the Hwenampori community.
The Aduana family told Newstimesgh.com in a statement that the Paramount Chief (Omanhene) of Sefwi Bibiani Anwiaso, Ogyeahoho Yaw Gyebi on 7th April this year by his authority ordered to overthrow the current Hwenampori Chief, Nana Kwasi Ampomaning II in order to put in a new Chief from the Ankobea family on Saturday, August 8, 2020.
The irate Royal Aduana family has however stated that they will resist any attempt by the Omanhene to install a new chief at Hwenampori. They will do everything in their capacity to protect their throne even if it will cost them their blood.
“Blood will flow on Saturday if Omanhene insists on installing another chief”, the statement according to the Aduana Abusuapanin.
They said the Omanhene should withdraw his decision as soon as possible.
“Omanhene should change his decision now else we will take the law in our own hands and fight everyone who by his unlawful mandate may attempt to install a new chief at Hwenampori because we can’t afford to lose our throne to aliens”, Hwenampori Queen Mother, Obaapanin Yaa Foriwaa told Newstimesgh.com in an interview.
They have however pleaded on Government to intervene with immediacy so as to parade peace in the community.
