White Pregnant Cow For Juju
KOFI AKWADA, the younger brother of Nana Ntoso Olenkwa, the Gyasehene of Nkomi Traditional Area, has been arrested for attempting to steal a white pregnant cow belonging to the Nkomi State stool in the Sene District of the Brong Ahafo Region.
It is alleged that the cow was meant for ritual purposes against the Krontihene and the queen mother of Nkomi, who are in support of the newly enstooled Nkomi Omanhene, Nana Kofi Egyemile Anyikor I.
Speaking to DAILY GUIDE , Kofi Ntumi, who is one of the opinion youth leaders in Kajaji, said he saw Kofi Akwada pulling the cow along the bank of the Volta Lake and asked him what he was doing with it.
Akwada told him that the Krontihene had asked him to take the animal to a certain shrine. According to Mr. Ntumi, he quickly called the Krontihene, Nana Kwadwo Osapona Asiri II, who denied instructing Akwada to take the white pregnant cow to any location.
The Krontihene therefore instructed Mr. Ntumi to get Akwada arrested, which he did.
When people got wind of the story of the stolen white pregnant cow, several interpretations were given to it.
Some residents were of the view that if the cow had been sent to the shrine, some chiefs of the area would have mysteriously died.
In an interview with Nana Mensah, an elder of Kajeji, he said there was a deity in the area which was so powerful that if you wanted to eliminate a rival, all you needed was a white pregnant cow.
It would be recalled that since the enstoolment of Nana Kofi Egyemile Anyikor I, the Gyasehene, who was not in favour of him, nominated another person. Investigations conducted by DAILY GUIDE indicated that the queenmother and the Krontihene, as well as a greater number of the youth of Kajeji, support Nana Kofi Egyemile Anyikor I, whereas the Gyasehene and a certain faction are against him.
Nana Kofi Egyemile Anyikor I, who is 27 years and the Manager of Smart Micro Finance Company Ltd, based in Sunyani, is a graduate of Legon Business School and holds a Higher National Diploma in Accounting and an International Executive MBA in Banking and Finance.
He is also a chartered accountant, a chartered economist and a student member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants-Ghana.
Some elders of the town who spoke to DAILY GUIDE said he was the youngest ever to mount the thrown.
Speaking to DAILY GUIDE on the case, Nana Anyikor said he was not afraid since he believed God would not forsake him.
He said with God, no one could harm him and appealed to the chiefs and people of Nkomi Traditional Area to stay calm in the face of all these provocations.
