The chief of Kaase, Nana Mensah Bonsu has been strongly accused of leading land guards to demolished buildings belonging to individuals at Wood Village, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
One of the victims, Yusif Adam, alleged that Nana Mensah Bonsu, is behind the demolishing of buildings in the area, but he was quick to state that the land his building is sited on was transfered to him (Adam) by one Madam Agyewaa, during the late Nana Owusu Yaw Ababio’s regime with a satisfactory documents.
However, it is being claimed that the said land and building have been allegedly sold out to one Sly by the brother of Nana Mensah Bonsu.
“The unlawful actions of the chief and his brother is trying to breed chaos in the area because my house has been demolished twice by Sly”. Yusif Adam said.
The case was later reported to the Adiebeba police station but Nana Mensah requested for the case to be settled out of court, yet the land guards are still on their nerves. The police confirmed that the land guards were acting under the orders of Nana Mensah Bonsu”. He alleged.
To ascertain the authenticity of the case, Nana Mensah Bonsu, was contacted on the 2nd of April 2019 and he declined to comment, since the issued can not be discussed on phone.
But upon contacting him at his Palace-Kaase on the 3rd of April, 2019, we were told by the chief linguist that the day was a sacred day and that the chief is forbidden to speak. A many followed up telephone calls were made to him, but efforts proved futile.
Yusif Adam expressed worry about the conduct of the chief and his brother for trying all means to create chaotic scene in the area.
But assured the public that he will not condone any violence to impugn the image of the government especially the Over Lord of Asanteman, Otumfou Osei Tutu II, hence calling on authorities, the security agency, Otumfou Osei Tutu II, to call Nana Mensah Bonsu and his brother to order before something dastardly happen.
