The Ngleshie Amanfro community was thrown into a state of chaos when land guards stormed the residence of the Abusuapayin, Nii Armah Okai, and beat him together with the Queen mother.
The attacks on the victims were launched when Nii Armah Okai decided to erect a gate at the palace for perfect security.
The Abuasupayin Nii Armah Okai together with the queen mother Nana Tambia were met with brute force by land guards who unleashed terror on them.
Narrating their ordeal in the hands of the land guards, Nana Tambia said she was at home when she received a call from Nii Armah Okai so she prepared and went to him.
She said she was there when Nii Okai was briefing her about the construction of the fence wall when a family member stormed the house ordering him to stop the construction.
According to her, a member of the family’s order was not accepted by Nii Armah Okai who said the construction of the wall is to ensure security and to prevent stray animals from entering the house.
“A family member wanted to know how he would have access to the house when it is fenced. So Nii Armah told him a key will be given to him so that he can come to the house at any time he wants to,” Nana Tamia said.
She averred that a family member then ordered his thugs to pull down the wall. “They maltreated me, drag me here and there. They also beat up my son and cut his body with knives,” she said.
On his part, Abusuapanyin Nii Armah Okai corroborated what the Queen mother narrated and stated that the development brought fear into the Ngleshie Amanfro community with people fearing for their lives.
He also narrated that he and the Queen mother decided to fix a gate to the family house which has been turned into a palace, and in the course of doing so, the Chief and his Lindquist called inland guards numbering about 100 who came and pull down the gate destroy it.
According to him, the land guards succeeded in brutalizing them in the process on the orders of the Chief.
Meanwhile, the Weija divisional police has confirmed investigating the chief dispute in the area.
