Kumasi Traditional Council Shut down Oyerepa Fm



Kumasi Traditional Council Shut down Oyerepa Fm

Oyerepa Radio, a private station broadcasting in the Ashanti Region, has been shut down by the Manhyia Palace, the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II’s residence.

According to Baffour Amankwatia VI, the acting president of the Kumasi Traditional Council and Bantamahene, the station must cease operations as of Friday, August 26, 2022 because it allowed Akwasi Addai “Odike,” the founder and leader of the United Progressive Party (UPP), to criticize the chiefs on air.

When a delegation from Oyerepa Radio and TV arrived before the traditional council to apologize for Odike’s remarks, Amankwatia VI delivered the instructions.

Odike angered the Manhyia Palace by accusing the Ashanti Chiefs of doing nothing to stop the problem of illegal mining in the Ashanti Region.

Akwasi Addai strongly criticized chiefs for their failure to assist in putting an end to the “galamsey” scourge while speaking on Oyerepa Radio.

If the traditional leaders do not make explicit their roles in or stances against illicit mining, he urged the youth to rise up and protest against the chiefs.

However, his remark was criticized as being offensive and unfounded and intended to harm Manhyia’s reputation.

On Friday, the chiefs of the Kumasi Traditional Council carried out ceremonies and killed a ram to purportedly drive Odike out of Manhyia.

The chiefs believe that Odike’s remarks were disrespectful, hence he has no place in Manhyia.

A 21-Year-Old Soldier Man Dies At Ashiaman.




A soldier belonging to the 3rd Battalion Infantry in Sunyani has been murdered in Tafia, a suburb of Ashaiman, in the Greater Accra region, on Friday, 3rd March 2023.

Imoro Sheriff, a 21-year-old boy was allegedly killed by a gang after he visited his girlfriend in the area.

Imoro, whose position could not be immediately verified, was attacked with knives and other weapons, immediately after leaving the girl­friend’s home.

It was said that Imoro usually visits his girlfriend anytime he goes to Ashaiman where he was born and raised.

When the Ghanaian Times visited the family home of Imoro, at Zongolika, a suburb of Ashaiman, on Monday, mourners were in a state of shock. The father of the deceased, Asa­nubu Imoro, confirmed the death of his son, saying he heard it via social media.

Asanubu Imoro said the son, who was based in Sunyani, Bono Region, informed him that he was attending a military programme in Accra and will visit family mem­bers on Friday.

“We were expecting him. When we called his number late into the night, there was no response. Somebody showed me a video and asked, do you know this man, that was when I identified my son.”

According to Asanubu Imoro, the military and other security agencies have been in close contact with the family as the investigation into the killing was ongoing.

When the Ghanaian Times con­tacted the Ashaiman Divisional Police Command concerning the incident, the authorities declined to speak on the matter, but indi­cated that 13 suspects had been arrested so far.

It is currently unknown what caused her to take her life and that of her son but eyewitnesses who interacted with the host of Connect FM’s Omanbapa morning show, Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson, narrated that they met the lifeless, bodies of the young mother and her son in the early morning of Wednesday, January 2023.

“We came to work in the building as laborers and saw the lifeless body of the lady and her son when we got there,” an eyewitness by name of Nana Yaw said.

“She could be in her early twenties whilst her son would be around four years. We don’t know where they come from and we don’t know any of their family members. They are still there on the ropes,” Nana Yaw added.

From the images available, the young parent is seen hanged whilst her son’s hand is tied with a rope in a sad situation.

  • “Information I have gathered is that residents around the community saw the young lady begging for money with her son yesterday around 4:00 pm. Nobody saw them again until this morning when we saw them dead in the uncompleted building. We do not know her in this community so we believe she came from somewhere else,” Assembly member for Ajoa, Robert James Yankey, indicated.
