Leaked nude pictures of a woman at a shrine performing rituals and incantations to kill President of Ghana – Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo, Okuapehene Oseadeyo Kwasi Akufo III, Victor Newman, a presidential staffer now deceased, and other persons who supported what she termed illegal enstoolment of the current Okuapehene.
The woman identified herself as Attaa Magali, a loyalist to the family of Odehye Kwasi Akufo, one of the candidates who attempted to ascend the Okuapehene stool.
The woman reportedly visited Torgbe Shitor Shrine in Akyem Kukurantumi in Abuakwa North Municipality of the Eastern Region.
In one of the pictures, the woman had a piece of cloth around her waist enchanting to the gods, “agoo agoo, nananom, it is me Ataa sister to Odehye Kwasi Akufo who is being denied the Okuapehene stool. I am the one putting this photo into the coffin. Anyone who is part of this grand scheme from the family to Court must be killed and summoned to the spiritual world to answer.”
[Fetish priest interrupts], drives away someone who accompanied the woman. The fetish priest then asked the woman to touch an amount of money she was holding to her heart area and drop it on the shrine.
Fetish priest subsequently directed the woman to inform Odehye Kwasi Akufo not to eat any food that was prepared with palm oil. The fetish priest also warned the woman to inform Odehye Kwesi Akufo not to get closer or sit on the stool because the god was going to sit on it for a while therefore anyone who sits on it will die. “Madam listens very well, the stool must be left to be where it is, and this is what the god is saying. It is going to sit on it to work, therefore anyone who sits on it will be cleared by the god.”
The spiritualist took the woman to another room where he made incantations for minutes and gave her a knife to stab a photo believed to be that of new Okuapehene Oseadeyo Kwasi Akuffo III multiple times while enchanting on the photo to hand over the stool to Odehye Kwasi Akufo.
The woman is seen in another video with the fetish priest who asked her to undress and make incantation over herbal concoction in a bucket, and mention the names of persons who are working against Odehye Kwasi Akufo and his family. “Those who have tied our souls in the middle of the Akropong so that we don’t get the support of the subjects must be dealt with. Sammy Mfum, Nana Ofei aka No Size, Baamuhene, Victor Newman, President Akufo-Addo are all included. Nananom, deal with them and also protect our family. Now, I bath this concoction to cancel any death on our family and send it back to them,” the woman said.
In another leaked picture, the naked woman was taken to an open bathhouse where another shrine was erected. The woman was directed by the fetish priest to bath the liquid concoction put in a locally weaved basket, and chant for goodwill upon her brother Odehye Kwasi Akuffo while wishing evil for his opponents including President Akufo Addo.
The fetish priest then makes final incantation while filming the nakedness of the woman. He asked the woman to fill a plastic bottle with the concoction and take it away together with an egg to give to Odehye Kwasi Akufo for similar incantation.
The new Okuapehene was enstooled and out doored on Sunday, May 3, 2020, under heavy state security.
Odehye Kwadwo Kesse, 34, was given the stool name Oseadeeyo Kwasi Akuffo II.
Oseadeeyo Kwasi Akuffo II – Okuapehene
He became the ninth Chief to ascend the Ofori Kuma Stool.
The opposing family believe President Akufo-Addo and some top government officials were the masterminds of the machination that denied Odehye Kwasi Akufo the stool.
The Okuapehene stool has three ruling houses – Nketia, Amogyaa, and Sakyeabea.
It was the turn of the Sakyeabea ruling house to select a candidate to be installed as Okuapehene five years after the death of Oseadeeyo Addo Dankwah III who reigned for 41 years.
However, in 2017, while Odehye Kwasi Akuffo was nominated by the Paramount Queen mother – Nana Afua Nketia Obuo, and began processes to install him as successor to the late Okuapehene, the Abrewatia of Sakyeabea Royal family also nominated Odehye Kwadwo Kese for the same stool.
This resulted in chieftaincy dispute that led to several clashes and destruction of properties in Akropong. The Palace was closed down and taken over by security operatives.
Lilian Nana Agyemang who is the Abrewatia of the Sakyeabea Royal family petitioned the Regional House of Chiefs challenging the traditional capacity of the Paramount Queen mother in nominating and installing Odehye Kwasi Akuffo as Okuapehene.
The nomination and enstoolment processes of Odehye Kwasi Akuffo was nullified by the Judicial Committee of the Eastern Regional House of Chiefs on Thursday, April 30, 2020.
Delivering the landmark judgment Thursday, April 30, 2020, the Eastern Regional House of Chiefs upheld that, selection of a legible royal to be enstooled as Paramount Chief is the prerogative of the Abrewatia of the ruling family whose turn it is to select a candidate and submit the name of the chosen royal to Asonahene to be sent to the Queen mother.
The House upheld that the Queen-mother failed to provide evidence that the right traditional procedures were followed before initiating processes to install Odehye Kwasi Akuffo as Okuapemhene.
The House also stated that the Queen mother alone cannot select a candidate from the Royal Family without the involvement of the Abrewatia, adding that, the involvement of the Abrewatia, the elderly female is an aged-custom which does not take away the powers of the Queen mother in presenting the candidate for final enstoolment. They therefore declared that the nomination and processes to install Odehye Kwasi Akuffo is null and void with no traditional effect hence should not parade himself as Okuapehene.
The house directed that due traditional processes must hence be followed in enstooling a successor.
The Regional House of Chiefs awarded GHc25,000 cost against the Queen-mother.
