The Akyem Swedru palace in the Abirim South District of the Eastern Region was on Sunday set ablaze during the celebration of the Akwasidae.

According to reports, the queen mother of the Akyem Bosome Traditional Area, during the celebration of the Akwasidae on Sunday, stormed the palace without the notice of the chief to pour libation.

Sources said the chief, Okotwaresuo Kantamanto Oware Agyekum III, performed the same right, which resulted in a crash between the traditional rulers.

Asafoakyere Kofi Asante, an alleged leader of the queen mother’s faction, purportedly mobilised some stoutly built men to attack the chief, as they claimed he (chief) had been destooled and so needed not participate in any activities at the palace.

One person has been reported dead while six others are injured following a shooting incident.
