Queen Mother Killed on way to settle chieftaincy dispute

Accra, September 17th, Ghanadot - Nana Asieduaa Antwi
Boasiako, the queen of mother Akyem Pramkese who was on her
way to “resolve” a chieftaincy dispute between two feuding
factions in Kade has been killed in a motor accident,
raising suspicion of foul play.
She had over the last ten days, been reported missing but
the search for her came to a tragic end when her body was
found at the Kade Hospital Mortuary.
The queen mother is said to have been involved in a road
accident on her way to Kade – from Koforidua – to “resolve”
a chieftaincy dispute there, a meeting called at the
instance of one faction which strongly opposed the
enstoolment of one Kofi Twumasi Ankrah, deemed to be the
queen mother’s favourite.
“We suspect it was a planned accident whereby they lured the
queen mother to meet them at Kade to resolve a chieftaincy
matter which had been lodged at the Kade Police Station.
“They monitored her movement from Koforidua and I think they
planted somebody at Koforidua to see the vehicle on which
they were travelling… and they crashed her,” he alleged.
Ankrah said Nana Boasiako had been threatened with death by
members of the anti-royal family also claiming to be next to
take up the stool.
Meanwhile, police at Kade have played down suggestions that
the late queen mother was assassinated, insisting it would
be premature to draw such a conclusion, especially, when
investigations are ongoing.
“For now it will be too (early) to come to conclusion
because so far as investigations are ongoing we must take
time and make our findings and our facts,” Police Commander
Superintendent Wisdom Akorley lamented
