The Principal Kingmakers of the Asere-Kotopon Division of the Ga Traditional Council has reiterated the destoolment of Nii Amar Noryaa I, also Known as Elliot Nii Yartey Boi who parades himself as the Chief of Nii Boiman.
According to the Chiefs, Elliot Yartey Boi is not the legitimate Chief of the area and has been destooled for being disrespectful to the stool and elders of the community who enstooled him.
A fortnight ago, the self styled Chief was destooled for gross insubordination towards the elders of Nii Boiman, flouting the oath , illegal installation of sub chiefs and the use of landguards.
The Dzaasetse of Nii Boiman, Nii Ayi Mensah I, made the assersion when Tribal Heads of Nii Boiman paid a courtesy call on him at his residence in Accra.
He further stated that Elliot Yartey Boi cannot call himself as a Chief since he breached the customs and traditions of the Ga State saying; that was why he was destooled by the Principal Kingmakers of Nii Boiman.
Reacting on his re-enstoolment, Nii Ayi Mensah I, pointed out that the Asere-Kotopon Stool, elders of Nii Boiman and the Ga Traditional Council has no hand in his re-enstoolment urging the public to disregard the fake installation.
He also refuted allegation circulating on the ground that some persons armed with offensive weapons including firearms invaded Elliot Yartey Boi’s residents to attack him, describing the allegation as palpable falsehood and must be treated with the contempt it deserves.
Nii Ayi Mensah I, noted that the deatooled chief was not threatened at gun point to denounce himself as a Chief but was rather brought to Nii Boiman to perform the destoolment rites in the presence of the family members and residents of the community.
He stressed that the Abeka traditional area is under Asere stool and traditionally, a son of a Chief cannot become a Chief which he noted was illegal in Ga tradition.
He added that prominent chiefs like the Abeka Manste and the Dzaasetse were not among the family members during the reinstallation making it illegal.
He therefore emphasized the need for residents of Nii Boiman not to transact any business with Elliot Yartey Boi as the Chief of the town, adding that the Nii Boiman stool is still vacant.
In his remarks, the Chief Imam of Nii Boiman, Imam Shafie Adams Aguda, expressed gratitude to Nii Ayi Mensah I, and the Asere-Kotopon Stool for their warm reception given to the Muslim Community in the area.
He pledged their support to the traditional elders of the community and the Ga State as a whole and called for calm in the area.
Some of the Tribal Heads present were Chantan Zongo Chief, Songhai Chief, Chamba Chief Sagaate Chief, Kotonkoli Chief among others.
