Coffin makers at Asafo Labour in the Kumasi Metropolis have threatened to fight officials of Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) over what they described as "forcibly ejection" by the authorities.

The Coffin Makers who marched in their numbers to the premises of OTEC FM on Monday, December 6, 2021 to protest their eviction said the KMA has given them up to the end of December 2021 to move out of the area.

But the coffin makers, however, say they will not move until they are given an alternative space.

Speaking to this reporter, one of the leading members of the group, Mr Effah Poku said although they are not against KMA, they will not move an inch until their interest is addressed by the authorities.

"We believe the decision by KMA to evict us was ill-implemented because there is no alternative place to accommodate us.

"They should not forget we are coffin makers, and I can assure them that we are ready to fight to any length even if it means fighting them with our coffins," he stated.

The group have therefore appealed to officials of KMA to as a matter of urgency address their concerns before they evict them from the place to avoid any clash.
