A press release issued in Accra and signed by the Shippi (Supreme Commander) of Ga/Gbese/Korle, Nuumo Okai Keteku I, also accused the James Town police of failure to ensure law and order and also bring the perpetrators of the attack on the palace of the Korle Wulomo to book.

“Our call on the IGP has become necessary and imperative following the refusal of the James Town Police to offer security to save life and protect properties after the brutal attack visited on the Korle Wulomo by known henchmen of Nii Adu Ayitey, who has
been parading himself as the Dzaasetse of the Ga State” the released said.

According to the release macho-men wielding offensive weapons such as cutlasses, machetes and clubs, stormed the palace of the Chief Priest on two separate occasions and they attacked residents and destroyed properties.

“At the end of their operation, many people at the palace were left wounded physically and psychologically, royal paraphernalia and decorations were destroyed, smart phones were seized and stolen from their owners. Conservative estimates put the cost of damage at over Ghc 20,000”.

A report was made at the James Town Police station and the police succeeded in inviting the Dzaasetse of Korle, Nii Adu Ayitey, and he confessed to recruiting and ordering the macho-men to visit the palace and destool the Korle Wulomo, but not to attack innocent people and destroy properties.

According to the press release, although Nii Adu Ayitey has been granted bail he has not been compelled upon to produce the suspected attackers of the palace of the Korle Wulomo.

“As it has become palpably clear to us that the James Town Police are refusing to act quickly to bring Nii Adu Ayitey and his gang of hoodlums to face justice for their barbaric act, we are appealing to the IGP and the Minister of the Interior to intervene to ensure that the right action is taken”.

The released concluded that “as the top echelons of the security services make frantic efforts to ensure peace in the country as we prepare towards general elections in December, we cannot sit unconcerned and allow few bad nuts in our midst to derail our collective efforts”.
