The Asamponhene of Kumasi has reportedly been killed by some armed men.

Nana Oheneba Kwadwo Fodour

Known as Nana Oheneba Kwadwo Fodour, he was reportedly stabbed whilst travelling on the Ejura – Nkoranza road on Sunday, August 18, 2019.

Police officers received information that a vehicle had been involved in an accident on the road but when they arrived at the scene, they realised the victim, who was later identified as Nana Fodour, had been stabbed.

The attackers reportedly also attempted to set the vehicle ablaze.

The body of the deceased has since been sent to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi.

The police have initiated investigations and suspect the incident was chieftaincy related.

Nana Fodour, popularly referred to as “Chief” in some quarters, owned the popular X5 pub at Ashanti New Town in Kumasi near the New Patriotic Party Ashanti Regional office.

He was a direct relative of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

As the Asamponhene of Kumasi, his role was to lead war for the Asantehene and moves ahead of the retinue of the Asantehene.
