He was a pioneering figure for the creation of the Oti Region.

The ceremony was attended by several traditional authorities such as Nana Kwaku Dua II, Krontihene of Kadjebi.

Nana Kwaku Dua described the late Omanhene as a peace-loving and well-respected chief amongst his subjects.

He said the final funeral is slated for 4th to 9th December 2019, and will be attended by President Nana Akufo Addo Danquah.
