Mr Charles Mensah became paralysed minutes after insulting the chief and royal family members in their stool house.

Nana Kyei Fram, chief of Ayigya, was re-solving a fracas that ensued between his nephew, Aduanaba Kwaku Amoah (caretaker of Ayigya stool lands), and the assemblyman, Kwadwo Frimpong.

The two were fighting over who has the authority to assign land for container shops in the community.

The victim, Mr Mensah, who is a friend of Frimpong, the assemblyman, was present at the meeting to resolve the misunderstanding.

During the process, Mr Mensah started insulting the chief and was cautioned by some elders to cease from his actions as he was looking for trouble with his disrespectful rants against their stool, but he did not heed their advice.

Mr Mensah and Frimpong got angry and decided to leave the meeting.

When he stood up, Mr Mensah fell back to his seat and was unable to move his legs.

After a while, he was carried away from the house to seek medical attention.

Later, Mr Frimpong reported the caretaker to Otumfuo’s Sumankwaahene for allegedly invoking a deity against him and his friend, Mr Mensah.

As at now, Otumfuo’s Sumankwaahene has referred the matter to Akyempemhene, who is to sit on the case.

Meanwhile, the assemblyman, Mr Frimpong has refuted that the gods of the stool house has paralysed the victim.

He said the victim is rather suffering from high blood pressure and nothing else.

He confirmed that the family of the victim is seeking spiritual treatment for him to be healed.

In view of this, the Aduana Royal Family of Ayigya has issued a ban on the sale of land in the area.

According to the caretaker of the stool land, Aduanaba Kwaku Amoah, most of the community lands have been sold indiscriminately, including those allocated for development projects.

He said the community is far behind in development, coupled with litigations and lack of unity.

His worry was that although there are legitimate traditional authorities in the town, some persons have resorted to disregard its authority, thereby creating misunderstandings in the community.

Aduanaba Amoah has told The Finder that, henceforth, the royal family of Ayigya is occupying its full position and has vowed not to tolerate any lawlessness and indiscipline against the chief.
