Baffour Adugyemfuo Kumani, the Chief of Kwapra in the Ashanti Region, has been destooled by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the overlord of the Ashanti Kingdom.

The decision to remove Baffour Adugyemfuo Kumani was sealed during a meeting of the Asanteman Traditional Council on Monday, December 11, 2023, at the Manhyia Palace.

After threatening to overthrow Baffour Adugyemfuo Kumani’s rule on charges of participating in the double sale of lands and breaking the Great Ashanti Oath (Ntamkese), the Asantehene summoned Kwaprahene in October.

“Kwaprahene knows why I’m looking for him. He knows I am looking for him because of the land issues. That’s why he is dodging me with the excuse of sickness. And he thinks he is smarter than me,” the Asantehene declared.

He stressed, “I won’t take any excuse from him. When he was young, he sold my land without bringing me my money. I forgave him, and you see the issue has returned to me,” Otumfuo Osei Tutu II recalled.

The Asantehene also took a swipe at the kingmakers of Kwapra for failing to give Baffour Adugyemfuo Kumani wise counsel.

“And you to the elders, I have always cautioned you against his excesses and that you should caution him to change his ways,” he reprimanded.

According to reports, Baffour Adugyemfuo Kumani failed to honour Asantehene’s invitation.

While ordering for rites to be performed for the removal of Kwaprahene, Otumfuo further ordered the destoolment of a number of sub-chiefs to Kwaprahene citing their inability to give the chief wise counsel.

The Asantehene also ordered persons with land issues in Kwapra to bring their matters before him while promising to resolve any such matter.
