A High Court in Accra has ordered the arrest of George Tackie Abia a.k.a. Nii Tackie Adama Latse II, for allegedly dodging court processes in order to frustrate his case before the Court.
Justice Gifty Adjei Addo, the judge, on Thursday 13th January 2020 granted and issued a Bench Warrant for the arrest of George Adama Latse II, a Respondent in a case before her, for him to be brought to Court alive.
The Judge directed James Oppong-Boanuh, Inspector-General of Police (IGP), to liaise with the International Police Organization (INTERPOL) and Ghana Immigration Service to ensure that the Adama Latse is apprehended.
Both the Ghana Police Service and the Ghana Immigration Service has intensified the manhunt for fugitive Nii Tackie Adama Latse II who on numerous occasions failed to attend Court without notifying the Court.
The Order was issued for the arrest of George Tackie Abia’s persistently refusing to attend Court for the Ruling of the Court in Suit No. GJ/292/2019, the Republic Vrs George Tackie Abia a.k.a. Nii Tackie Adama Latse II to be read out by the High Court.
George Tackie Abia a.k.a. Nii Tackie Adama Latse II hails from Tackie Adama ‘We’ gate of Nii Teiko Tsuru ‘We’, which gate is not a Royal Gate of Nii Teiko Tsuru ‘We’ and the Ga Paramount Stool. Respondent is either hiding himself in the country or in the United Kingdom.
In another development, Justice Novise Afua Aryene (Mrs) in Suit No. GJ/9662019, the Republic Vrs Nii Doodo Nsaki II, Acting President, Ga Traditional Council, Respondent, Ex-parte: Nii Tackie Adama Latse II, Applicant, Nii Tetteh Ashong V, Ga Seitse/Osiahene, Interested Party the Court ruled that since there were numerous Suits and Petitions pending before the Courts and Judicial Committee of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs to determine the position of Ga Mantse therefore Nii Tackie Adama Latse II doesn’t qualify to be invited to be the President of the Ga Traditional Council as Ga Mantse.
Justice Novisi Afua Aryene (Mrs) further resolved that the position of Ga Mantse is yet to be determined by the Judicial Committee of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs in various Petitions including Suit No. GARHC/P2/2019, Nii Tackie Adama Latse II Vrs Dr. Kelvin Tackie and others and that there are justifiable reasons for Respondent, Nii Dodoo Nsaki II, not to vacate the position of Acting President of the Ga Traditional Council because the grant of an Order of Mandamus would amount to the Court determining a matter affecting Chieftaincy; Jurisdiction which the High Court lacks.
Justice Novisi Afua Aryene (Mrs) in the Ruling dated 8th November, 2019 refused the Ruling since since on the face of the evidence before the Court failed to proof the he made a request on the Respondent to perform the alleged public duty, which was refused, since Applicant never made any demand because the letter dated 6th February, 2019 which was exhibited was written on behalf of one Nii Yaote Oto-Ga II, who purports to be Dzasetse of the Ga Paramount Stool Dzase. A False Claim revoked by the two rulings of the Judicial Committee of the Ga Traditional Council.Whichs rulings Affirms and Confirms Dr. Nii Tetteh Kwei ll as the only Ga Paramount Stool Djasetse and Principal Kingmaker of the Ga Mantse Stool.
On the 20th of October 2017, Dr Nii Tetteh Kwei ll Enthroned King Tackie Teiko Tsuru ll As the Only and Legitimate Ga Mantse. Based on the strength of the 1st April 2014, ruling of the Judicial Committee of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs Dodowa.
This Brings our thoughts on the true facts laid bare:
On the CID Forms Nii Adama Latse claims he was installed on 11th June 2011. However, as at that time the case challenging the installation of Dr. Joe Blankson was pending. There was no injunction against Dr. Joe Blankson not to carry himself as a chief. Therefore, Dr. Blankson was still the Chief at that time. It is trite knowledge in chieftaincy that a person can only be installed as a chief when there is a vacancy either by death, abdication or deposition. Any purported installation of any person while the stool was not vacant is void ab initio. Komey vrs Onanka (1962) 1 GLR 52 @ 53. Therefore in law it is deemed that the installation of Adama Latse did not take place since at the material time he claims to have been installed there was already an occupant on the Ga Paramount Stool save that his (Dr. Blankson) installation was being challenged.
A judgment in the matter was given in 2014. It was this judgment that declared the stool vacant (as from the date of the judgment). Therefore, Adama Latse could not have been installed in 2011 since at that time the litigation over the stool had not been determined.
