The chief of the famous Asante town of Antoa, Nana Kwame Owusu Agyeman has been destooled. The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu in a ruling destooled the Antoa chief following a number of alleged offences.
The ruling was delivered by Otumfuo himself who is the President of the Kumasi Traditional Council on his first sitting yesterday, May 29, after his trip to the United Kingdom.
Nana Kwame Owusu Agyeman has been on the Antoa stool for the last 23 years.
The chief is reported to have gone against the customarily laid out and accepted procedures in instating his nephew to take over from him while he lives. When he was confronted by his kinsmen and elders to seek the permission of Otumfuo, he reportedly ignored them.
After hearing the case, Otumfuo Osei Tutu ruled against him and ordered his destoolment.
