Angry palace executioners and some police officers at the Sunyani traditional area in the Bono Region have been caught in a video assaulting some residents for defying funeral orders in the area.
The residents following the death of their late queen mother, Nana Yaa Nyamah were expected to comply with some rules that were announced prior to the burial of their queen.
They were expected to be clad in mourning attires with no one wearing jewellery.
Some businesses, as well as churches, were to halt operations from Monday, February 24 to Saturday, February 29, 2020, when the final rites will be held.
However, in a video circulating on social media, it shows residents who were in ordinary attire aside the prescribed ones being chased and battered when caught.
Some lucky residents managed to get into moving vehicles before they went through the same ordeal.
The deceased died on Thursday, August 1, 2019, at the Regional Hospital in Sunyani at age 64.
Known in private life as Helena Akosua Yeboaa, the late Nana Yaa Nyamaa Puduo II was enstooled in 1973 at the age of 18 just after completing elementary education at the Nyamaa Girls Middle School in Sunyani and reigned for 46 years.
According to the arrangements, the body of the late queen would be laid in state at the ‘Boahen Korkor Fie’ (the palace of the Sunyani paramountcy) at Asufufu, a suburb in Sunyani from Wednesday, February 26 to Friday, February 28.
