Traditional leaders of Nii Boiman Sub-Divisional Council of the Asere-Kotopon quarter of the Ga Traditional Council have de-stooled the Chief of the area, Nii Armar Noryaa I, for gross insubordination towards his kingmakers, flouting the oath and illegal installation of sub-chiefs.
Nii Armar Noryaa I, known in private life as Elliot Yartey Boi, was de-stooled on September 12 2020, at Nii Boiman when he was planning to celebrate the Homowo.
Briefing the press in Accra, the Dzaasetse of Nii Boiman, Nii Ayi Mensah I, explained that the destooled Chief has been disrespectful and impolite to the stool and elders of the community who enstooled him saying; keeping him as the Chief will be problematic and a threat to his people.
According to him, Nii Armar Noyaa I, had always shown gross disrespect to the leaders and never listened to them and takes decision on his own, without consulting the elders.
Nii Ayi Mensah I, after a deliberation by the various esteemed Asere-Kotopon Chiefs, pointed out that Nii Armar Noryaa I, breached the customs and traditions of the Ga State, which is punishable and subsequently demanded him to cease parading himself as the Chief of Nii Boiman henceforth.
He reiterated that the Asere-Kotopon Stool had on several occasions warned the de-stooled Chief on issues ranging from illegal sale of lands and enstoolment of his Muslim chiefs without their consent among other violations.
The Nii Boiman Dzaasetse also accused Elliot Yartey Boi of making fake documents and extorting monies from innocent people in the community.
Nii Ayi Mensah I, noted that Nii Armar Noryaa I, was restrained from performing any chieftaincy activity at a sitting by the Judicial Committee of the Ga Traditional Council but refused to adhere to it.
According to him, the Traditional Council was notified about his attempt to celebrate Homowo on
Saturday, 12 September, 2020 and a letter was sent to him to stop which the various Police Commanders were copied but he refused to accept his copy by threatening the Sender.
Nii Ayi Mensah I, therefore cautioned the public not to transact any business with Elliot Yartey Boi as the Chief of Nii Boiman, saying anyone doing business with him does so at his or her own risk.
He concluded by calling on all the chiefs installed by the de-stooled chief to also abdicate themselves since they were installed illegally.
