Three individuals accused of shooting to death four people at the Omanhene Palace at Pai Kantanka have been charged with murder and arraigned in a Ho court.

The three are Kwabena Aduam, Amanpene Gyane and Keabena Asante. Aduam and Gyane were granted bail while Asante, who absconded after the act in 2019 has been remanded in prison custody.

Justice George Buadi adjourned the case to 11 May 2022 to take the pleadings of the suspects before the juries will be selected to help the trial judge in adjudicating the case.

Background

The incident happened when gunmen wielding locally made short guns stormed the chief’s palace in broad daylight and killed one on the spot with three others dying at the Worawora Government Hospital.

Following investigations, the police arrested two in the town and picked up Asante in Togo after a few months.

The area has been hit with a series of chieftaincy disputes despite court ruling affirming Nana Diawuo Bediako II as the substantive ruler. He has since been gazetted at the National House of Chiefs.
