A piece of breaking news reaching us at occupygh.com indicates that the Sunyani High Court has issued an injunction, barring the Paramount Chief of the Dormaa Traditional Area, Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Nana Agyeman Badu, from taking part in the burial rites of the late Paramount Chief of Berekum Traditional Area, Daasebre Dr Amankona Diawuo II.
The court’s decision comes after Osabarima Kyere Yeboah Darteh II of the Berekum Traditional Council raised concerns about potential disruptions to peace due to conflicting attendance plans.
It is reported that the Dormaahene’s intention to attend the burial alongside the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, prompted the legal intervention to prevent possible clashes.
The Berekum Traditional Council had outlined a schedule for the attendance of various dignitaries, including the Dormaahene and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Wednesday, November 22, and the Asantehene on Thursday, November 23.
Traditionally, the Asantehene is expected to be the last to attend the burial, given his authority to enstool a new chief in the Berekum Traditional Area.
The legal action aims to forestall any potential disorder arising from the simultaneous presence of the two paramount chiefs at the event.
The court has also engaged the Ghana Police Service to enforce the injunction, underscoring the importance of maintaining peace in Berekum and its environs.
