Chaos erupted at the launch of a Shatta Movement fan club at Ngleshie Amanfrom in the Ga South Municipality of the Greater Accra Region on Saturday, June 15, 2019, when two groups clashed.
The launch was being supervised Shatta Wale’s father Charles Nii Akramah Mensah but a group of people supporting Nii Kwashie Gborlor IV, Chief of Ngleshie Amanfrom.
YEN.com.gh gathers that there is an impending chieftaincy dispute between Nii Kwashie Gborlor IV and Shatta’s father, who is said to be carrying himself as the chief of the area.
It was in their bid to stop Shatta’s father from making such claims and also stop the launch that Nii Kwashie’s faction gatecrashed the event leading to a chaotic situation.
According to a report YEN.com.gh sighted on Citinnewsroom, the event turned bloody aftert the chief’s faction allegedly attacked members of Shatta’s camp claiming Wale’s father had no right to hold himself up as the chief of the area.
It took the intervention of Officials of the Ghana Police Service in the area to disperse the crowd and restore calm to the scene.
Photos from the scene show chairs and canopies for the event all mowed down because of the altercation.
Speaking to Citi News, Nii Kwashie stated that the posture of Shatta Wale’s father is inimical to the customs hence, he will use the appropriate channels to oppose his actions.
“He is claiming himself as the custodian of the area. So he is telling people that he is coming to launch the fan club, but it is a lie. We will not sit down for that to happen. As a gazetted chief, I will act according to the law so this won’t happen. I respect the law. We have given a letter with the police and we have informed the National Security.”
Shatta Wale was not present as at the time of the incident but some of his militants were seen at the launch.
