PETITION
BY THE CHIEFS, QUEEN MOTHERS, ELDERS, YOUTHS AND OPINION LEADERS FOR CONTINOUS DETENTION OF THEIR PARAMOUNT CHIEF TORGBEGA KOFI NYARKU VII, ZIKPUITOR AGORWU II OF SOVIE KONDA AND TWO OTHER YOUTHS DUE TO CHIEFTAINCY DISPUTE

1. We the chiefs, Queen Mothers, Elders, opinion leaders and youths from Sovie Kpekpe Etor Traditional Area of the Kpando Municipality affirm that Togbega Kofi Nyarku VII who was installed by the Kingmakers and people of Sovie Kpekpe Etor over nine (9) years ago, is our Paramount chief.

2. That ever since our Paramount Chief was duely installed there were a handful of people who opposed and tried to kill him on several occasions. These incidences were reported to the Kpando Divisional Police Command who did little to get these criminal cases investigated.

3. Coupled with this is the illegal installation of a supposed paramount chief for Sovie Kpekpe Etor, in the person of Mr. Felix Tordetse whose installation we know for a fact the MP. Hon. Dela Sowah has a hand in. The said Tordetse openly makes pronouncements on countless occasions that he has the full backing of the MP. Dela Sowah.

4. Since the nomination of Hon. Delali Paulina Adinyrah (Nee Avortri) as the MCE who hails from Sovie Kpekpe Etor Traditional Area, in 2013 by His Excellency the President John Dramani Mahama we had not known peace due to the activities by the MP to remove our daughter from office.

5. We are very much aggrieved that on the 10th May, 2016, our Paramount Chief Togbega Kofi Nyarku VII was arrested, handcuffed and whisked off in an unknown vehicle in the full glare of the public at the premises of the Kpando Circuit Court. This action has not just humiliated our Paramount Chief and the Sovie Kpekpe Etor but the entire SASA communities namely Sovie, Alavanyo, Saviefe and Akrofu.

6. The brother of our Paramount Chief Togbega Kofi Nyarku VII Senyo Prika went to the CID headquarters in Accra to enquire why he was arrested, he was told specifically by the homicide unit that the MP Dela Sowah sponsored the arrest of our Chief.  It is now clear that Dela Sowah has brought a political dimension into our Chieftaincy dispute and has succeeded in dividing the once united Sovie.

7. We are peace loving people and will like to be at peace with everybody but if Hon. Dela Sowah by her activities calls for war, she will definitely have it

DEMANDS
We the people of Sovie Kpekpe Etor and the entire SASA Du fraternity demand the following:
1. The immediate release of our Paramount Chief Togbega Kofi Nyarku VII, Togbe Dzamgbo, Zikpuitor of Sovie Konda, Stephen Adzato (Olu) and Yaokumah Stephen who have been in detention since 5th April till now.

2. That Yaokumah Stephen who sustained gun short wounds on his way to attend to his sick mother, be treated and the cost of his treatment be born by the state.

3. That the government should immediately intervened with proper investigation of the murder of the late Mr. Vitsro Mensah Febian leading to the arrest of the actual perpetrators of this heinous crime.

4. That once there is a dispute, the police should ensure that tradition is followed in all respect in all Sovie Communities. We want to state unequivocally that we the good people of Sovie traditional area have only one Paramount Chief in the person of Togbega Kofi Nyarku the VII also known in private life as George Prika.  Consequently, Mr. Felix Tordetse who is parading himself as Paramount Chief in town resulting in all these dispute and instabilities, and his cohorts should seize, to hold him up as such, and wait for the rulings of the regional house of chiefs.

5. That a full disclosure and arrest of all members present at the meeting that mid-night in the residence of Mr. Felix Tordetse where the murder is purported to have happened by the Police and the BNI.

6. The name and car number of the driver who conveyed the body of the deceased to the Anfoega Catholic Hospital. An answer to why no alarm was raised at the time of the incident but rather 10:00am the next morning?

7. We are stating in strong terms that on no account should the MP. Dela Sowah visit or stop at Sovie town for any reason since the people of Sovie and by extension the four SASA towns will not tolerate such arrogance and disrespect. We hope our petition will touch the heart of the authorities for peace and justice to prevail and grant bail to those innocent persons arrested including our Paramount Chief Togbega Kofi Nyarku VII, Zikpuitor Agorwu II, Stephen Adzato and Stephen Yaokumah whiles further investigation continues.

Count on your co-operation.
Long live Sovie Kpekpe Etor.
Long live Ghana.
