The Ashanti regional police command has commenced investigations into the death of one Kwame Appiagyei believed to be in his 40s.
Mr Appiagyei died during a Chieftaincy dispute at Offinso Asamankama in the Ashanti region on Thursday.
Mr Appiagyei was stabbed and later shot in the chest after he had allegedly shot one person in an attempt to disperse a crowd at Offinso Akwamuhene’s palace at Asamankama, a suburb of Offinso.
The confusion ensued when the royal family attempted to select a successor for the late chief for Asamankama, Nana Asamoah Okyere, who passed on three years ago.
The Ashanti regional police command has deployed armed police personnel to the community to maintain law and order.
