In fact, one would have thought the uproar that greeted the incident would have purged subsequent events of these bestial activities  only for the sad  afternoon news on Monday, 9th of August be flogged with the brutal murder of Nana Egyiri, a chief at Gomoa Akranmang in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region.

The Queen Mother who has been very vociferous and outspoken about the increasing spate bemoaned all stakeholders particularly the police, and the judiciary to deal ruthlessly within the law crimes of this kind as it unleashes untold hardship on women and children. According to her, chieftaincy disputes have multiple, long- and short-term impacts on women, children and society as a whole. She says the its effects are felt at various spatial levels, within the immediate area of dispute, and often in neighbouring areas and national level as state resources are committed to solving these disputes.
