A new chief of Gomoa Fete in the Central Region would be outdoored this week end, barring any unforeseen circumstances by the Chiefs ,elders and the people of the Gomoa Twidan Royal Family.
The family, made this announcement after the destoolment of Nana Abore Yamoah II, the embattled Chief of Gomoa Fete by the Winneba High Court. Nana Essel Kwesi Amoquandoh II, the new Chief has been installed.
The family, made this public after a letter was sent to the Central Regional Police command to provide protection for the outdooring of the new Chief.
Speaking to The Herald in an interview, the spokesperson for the Twidan Royal Family clan, appealed to the general public to respect the decision of the family and accord the needed respect to the new chief, as the leader of Gomoa Fete.
We want the public to know Nana Abore Yamoah, knwon in private life as, Eddie Acquaye, that he is no more the Chief of the area.
He said, the beleaguered chief, has surrounded himself with questionable characters and has managed to sell the family lands, to influential
persons in the society.
He alleged that evidence available to him suggest that the destooled chief, did not only sell the lands, but forged the signature of the Family Head (Abusuapayin).
Meanwhile, elders of the Abor Ewusi Royal of Gomoa Fete in the Central Region have appealed to the President, John Dramani Mahama and the National Security apparatus to help unravel the mystery behind the murder of the late Nana Kwame Okyere Pantu, the Mankralo of Gomoa Fete who was shot dead in front of his house at Fete Kakraba; a town close to the Liberia refugees camp on February this year.
Speaking at an emotionally charged press conference in Accra, Mr Stephen Akon Mensah, secretary to the family clad in red, said tension was brewing at Gomoa Fete, over the murder of the stool head and Mankralo of the area.
According to him, the murder of the stool head by unidentified assassins, has something to do with the Fete Chieftaincy dispute since 1997.
He said eight persons namely; Nana Kofi Baah, Abusuapayin Kwaku Mensah, Nana Kwasi Essel Sey, Kwasi Yorbo, Kow Gyabaah Barnor, Kwasi Boadi and Abiodu Ibrahim, were arrested by the Police during investigations and put before the law court.
“We were shocked to hear that two of the suspects, Kweku Essel Sey and one other, have been released on bail.
He said when the two suspects were granted bail, the family petitioned the Chief Justice (CJ), Madam Georgina Wood and copied to the President, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) and others, because the main suspect, Nana Abor Yamoah II and his chief land guard, Kwasi Alhaji are walking free, despite the fact that they earlier threatened the deceased on several occasions.
He questioned whether suspects in murder, rape and defilement cases, are granted bail when new suspects have not been arrested in the case under investigation.
