Ghana was last week thrown into shock as members of the two rival parties, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) clashed over invocation of their village deities.
The Hawk reporter who took stock of the clash said it took off at cemetery where Bono Regional Chairman of governing New Patriotic Party, Kwame Baffoe, known in politics as ‘Abronye DC’ sued Yayra Koku before, a fanatic of the opposition National Democratic Congress for listing him (Abronye) as a beneficiary of the missing excavators seized by the anti-galamsey operation.
Angered by the conduct of the Bono Regional Chairman, the Deku Family of Avernopeme in the Akatsi South District of the Volta Region intercepted the acerbic Regional Chairman and threatened a showdown.
The Deku Family served ‘Abronye’ a seventy-two hours ultimatum to revoke the curses he pronounced on one of their sons, Yayra Koku, or face their wrath.
But unyielding Kwame Abronye, called the bluff and smeared courtesy of the face of the Deku family and dared them to do their worse.
The family’s threat follows the release of video in which Abronye was seen pouring libation and invoking curses in a cemetery over what he said were allegations made against him about his involvement in some 500 missing excavators.
Abronye had claimed in the said video that Yayra Koku had, through his facebook page, accused him of being in the possession of some of the excavators.
But, according to the Deku family, their son has denied all the allegations levelled against him in the video while their check through his facebook showed that he made no such allegations against Abronye.
The family has, therefore, asked Abronye to render an unqualified apology through the same medium he used to invoke the curses to Yayra Koku and the entire Deku family.
The family has said in their release that the NPP man would face the wrath of Torgbui Zakadza of Nogokpo, Torgbui, Hogbatso of Atiavi, Torgbui Ga of Klikor and Torgbui Ga of Avenorfeme if he fails to apologize.
Abronye DC fires back; gives Nogokpo elders two-hour ultimatum
The Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe, has called the bluff of the family of a young man he cursed for allegedly defaming him.
Abronye DC, as he is popularly called, invoked dreaded deities on one Yayra Koku for accusing him of keeping four of the 500 missing excavators on Facebook.
To demonstrate his innocence, the Bono East NPP Chairman decided to curse the young man and urged the gods to deal with him if the allegation is false.
Abronye DC’s conduct has angered the family of Mr Koku who has given him 72 hours to revokw the curse.
Failure to do this, a statement signed by Coker Gbedzaha, family head of Deku family of Avernopeme, said they will summon him to gods in the Volta region.
But Abronye DC on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Thursday said he will not be cowed by empty threats.
He could not fathom why the family at Nogokpo has made public its intention when the members could have gone ahead to curse him like he did to their kinsman.
“Why have they given me 72 hours when they could have just gone ahead to do their worse. I have given them just two hours,” he fumed.
The outspoken NPP Chairman maintained that, he is innocent of the charge, therefore, if their kinsman is also innocent; they should not worry about the consequence of his curse.
Abronye DC said Mr Koku’s plight should serve as a lesson to young politicians who sit on social media and denigrate the integrity of others.
Meanwhile, the seventy-two hours challenge has elapsed.
