4 arrested over missing chief’s body

Information reaching Daily Guide indicates that four persons, including the caretaker of the Yilo Krobo chief’s palace, Adams Tetteh Ologo , have been arrested by the Akuse police in the East�ern Region in connection with the exhumation of the remains of Nene Dawutey Ologo V, the late paramount chief of the area.

Sources confirmed that some angry youth on Wednesday attempted to storm the chief’s palace to demonstrate but it turned into a violent clash between them and the police on duty there.

The protestors later hit the streets to burn tyres and hurled stones at the police as some of the youth, including a Radio XYZ reporter, Bernet Avvovi , sustained injuries during the scuffle.

Daily Guide gathered that some police officers who were on duty at that time took photographs and video footage of the demonstrators, and led by the Akuse police chief, ASP Francis Ackah, made some arrests.

ASP Francis Ackah con�firmed to Daily Guide that his outfit arrested three suspects but refused to give their names, adding that the police were still going round to arrest those captured by their cameras.

The family of Nene Ologo Dawutey , who died about six years ago – as reported last Monday, is accusing a rival faction of secretly taking his remains from the royal mausoleum to an unknown location.

The police were frantically searching for suspects believed to have exhumed the body from the grave after six years of its burial.

Daily Guide learnt that the police provided the needed security at the mausoleum for the new chief who is reported to have been installed from the Nuer gate, following a court judgment in favour of that gate against the two others – Ologo and Akrobotu , who had reportedly teamed up to fight the Nuer gate over the stool.

The new chief, known in private life as Romeo Kofi Tetteh, aged 37, is the logistics manager of the Ghana Health Service (GHS). He goes by the stool name Nene Nuer Anoba Sasraku II.
