Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is seen in a video circulating online publicly chastising a subchief for selling a plot of property twice.
In the video, the Asantehene is flanked by his subjects and aides as he questions the chief and his accuser face-to-face in his courtyard.
After being dragged to Otumfuo’s Palace by one of the two victims, the original purchaser of the disputed land, the chief made an appearance with an entourage and was subjected to a hard interrogation outside of the regular royal court session.
The accused leader acknowledged that he had sold the plot of land to two distinct buyers.
Land purchase in Ghana is crazy! 🇬🇭 🏡
One moment, you secure your dream plot, the next – a twist! 😞
A chief sells land to you, sells same land to another person and wickedly refuses to refund.
The Asantehene deals with this bad sub-chief right infront of the victim. 🙌 pic.twitter.com/vZF8Ra8DDT

“Why let someone else use the same parcel if you sell it and then reenter it without telling the original owner?
“Now that the issue is being fought over, what are you implying? that you are superior to all others in wisdom? Is someone off the property? The subchief was asked by the Asantehene. “I’ll destool you right away if you misbehave.”
The aforementioned matter was reportedly presented before the Manhyia in 2014. The victim of the double land transaction eventually filed a lawsuit, citing the chief’s refusal to abide by the Palace arbitration’s ruling.
When he was called before the courts, the chief, however, denied that the case had ever been arbitrated at Manhyia.
When the chief was being questioned by the Asantehene on camera, it was not immediately apparent. It was uploaded on X by Ibrahim Sannie Daara, a former Ghana Football Association (GFA) spokesperson, who said it would discourage other traditional chiefs.
