Controversial social media activist Ohene David has invoked curses on the Overlord of Ashanti Kingdom, Otumfour Osei Tutu II.
This comes after it was alleged that the founder of United Progressive Party, Akwasi Addai popularly known as Odike had disrespected the Overlord of the Ashanti Kingdom.
Mr. Akwasi Addai Odike has also been banished from the Ashanti Region for ‘defaming’ chiefs in Asanteman and the Asantehene.
Odike was a guest on Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM last week, where he lashed out at traditional leaders for failing to fight against illegal mining, which he noted was having a devastating effect on forest, land and water reserves in the area.
“My is directed at the occupant of the Golden Stool (Otumfuo Osei Tutu II) and Manhyia. Nana, if you are listening, please listen well. Your ancestors, Sir Osei Agyemang Prempeh and others, left us lands with
water bodies intact…. Nana, the way you are looking on for us to lose our forests and water bodies to galamsey, what account are you going to give Sir Osei Agyemang Prempeh when you die someday?” he questioned while the host of the programme, Nana Yaw Mensah Joel sought to require Odike to be measured in his utterances against the revered Otumfuo.
This, he said, seems to be happening without a response from the traditional leaders who are rather watching for politicians to destroy the forests.
“Offinsohene alone fought against galamsey until he died. But as soon as he died, they have taken over Offinso and its enclave. Otumfuo, all the divisions are under your watch. Is it good what is happening? You tend to dissociate yourself from the politicians, but you are active participants like we would not be in this position,” he said.
