Court stops late Ga Manye funeral, speculations shots up

Estimated read time 2 min read

The Accra High Court has placed an interim injunction on the funeral of the late Ga Manye Naa Dedei Omaedru III. The Queen mother died in December 2022 and her funeral was scheduled to take place this weekend but the move has hit a snag.

However, following the injunction brought on the funeral committee led by Nii Otintor II by seven others, the funeral would not proceed as planned. It is still unclear why the seven people which include members of the late Ga Manye family, her linguist and principal elders had to injunct the funeral. The injunction came despite the processes towards the burial of the late leader having begun in the national capital.

The plaintiffs in the case are Nuumo Emmanuel T. Antia We, Head of the Antie We of Kpone, Nii Addey Oba-Aasaa II, Ankobea of Antie We of Kpone, Shippi Antie I, Saduase Shippi Kpone, Charles Nii Kotey Kotey, Head of Naa Dedei Omaedru We Family of Faase, Accra, Asafoatse Nii Kotey Ga II, Oseahene of Ga Manye Stool and Principal Elder of the Naa Dedei Omaedru We of Faase Accra, Michael Nii Ofei Danso of unnumbered House Accra, Principal Elder of Naa Dedei Omaedru We of Faase Accra and Naa Yomofio, Linguist of Ga Manye Naa Dedei Omaedru We.

“It is hereby ORDERED Defendants/Respondents or the Funeral Committee chaired by Nii Otintor II, all members of the committee, their privies, workmen, assigns and all persons working through them are restrained from handling, organizing, touching performing or dealing with the remained of the Late Queen Mother, Naa Dedei Omaedru III in any manner for a period of ten (10) days,” the court order reads.
