Aperade Citizens Call For Truce
A group of people calling themselves Concern Citizens of Akyem Aperade a farming community in the Birim South District of the Eastern Region have called for a ceasefire between the chief of Aperade Obrempong Twum BArima I and the Krontihene of the same town Nana Effah Amoamoah II.
In a petition signed by one Opanin Kwasi Takyi and copied to the Aperadehene, Krontihene, Abusuapanin, Omanhene of the Akyem Bosome Traditional area , and all clan heads in the community, the people said the dispute between the Aperadehene and the the Krotihene has brought tension in the town. “This acrimony between the Aperadehene and the Krontihene has resulted in the division of every activity undertaken in the community” the statement added.
They are therefore calling on the chiefs to end every rancour among them in order for sustainable peace to visit the community and to foster effective development. Failure to do so will compel them to advise themselves accordingly, the statement added.
Nana Effah Amoamah II, the krontihene who first received his letter assured the concern citizens that both parties will sit to make compromises for the sake of development and the peace of the community.
Addressing a section of the town folks who gathered at the durbar grounds of the community during the presentation, Krontihene said he will not deny that there is a bad blood between him and the Aperadehene who is popularly known in private life as ‘Rokoto’.
He, however, assured the youth that though the Aperadehene is not in town, he believes the clan heads will find ways of bringing the two feuding factions together for the imminent truce to be chalked.
