Sources at the palace said the meeting was held in a peaceful atmosphere to the satisfaction of all present.
They said both parties were given the chance to tell their side of the story as the Asantehene listened attentively.
The Asantehene, after listening to the factions, said some few words and said a similar meeting would be held at the palace at a date after the Easter celebrations.
Otumfuo consequently adjourned the meeting which was agreed by the Abudus and Andanis present.
According to the sources, the sitting lasted for some few hours but it proved vital regarding finding peace between the two groups.
