The Ashanti Regional Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), ASP Godwin Ahianyo who narrated the incident to Pure FM’s Osei Kwadwo said “there was instruction from the Ashanti Regional Security Council (REGSEC) that no one should hold himself as a chief for which a committee has been set to look into the issue”.

The leadership of the factions are currently on bail and will be processed for court.

Two persons contesting the position, Alhaji Muntari Baturi and Alhaji Wahab have also been charged.
