Chiefs: Impose curfew to control tension in Prampram

The traditional leaders say curfew will serve a great deal of effort in controlling the tensed situation in Prampram

The Prampram Traditional Council is calling for the imposition of curfew in the area to calm tempers a few days after the leader of the Kley Wetso (Kley family), Nene Ayerh Otuseiklo II, was shot dead by some unknown persons at the Lalue shrine (the shrine of the people of Prampram).

Speaking at a press conference in Prampram, one of the traditional leaders, Asafoatse Lartey Bantama IV, said curfew will serve a great deal of effort in controlling the situation because the town has not known peace for the past six years.

He attributed the development to chieftaincy issues being allegedly orchestrated by what he termed a “self-imposed paramount chief, Nene Waka III”.

“We don’t have a chief. It is a certain gentleman called Parker, a self acclaimed chief who is the cause of these unfortunate happenings in this town. Prampram has not known peace since 2016 because of him. Chieftaincy is not about taking human lives,” he alleged.

“I’m calling on the President Akufo-Addo and the Inspector General of Police Dr Akuffo Dampare, the national security, the Ga Mantse, the Asantehene Otumfuo and the Greater Accra Regional minister Henry Quartey to as a matter of urgency intervene to save the situation. Parker can not take the law into his own hands, he is not above the laws of the country.”

Meanwhile, the family of the deceased is calling on the police to fast track investigations into the shooting incident.
