The Chief of Dantano, a farming community in Asunafo South District of Ahafo Region, Kwaku Anane, has beaten the queen mother of the area over funeral donations.
The queen mother, Nana Abena Gyapah III, told DAILY GUIDE on phone that she received severe beatings last Friday after she challenged the eligibility of the chief to collect funeral donations from bereaved families in the community.
Following the assault during which she said some youth in the town rescued her, she was advised to report the case to the Kukuom Police Station where she was issued with a police medical form for examination and to return the completed form for action.
Police officers from Goaso and National Security operatives later intervened to stop a clash between supporters of the chief and queen mother.
The two persons have not been on good terms and the queen mother while speaking to the DAILY GUIDE said she did not recognise the man who assaulted her as a chief, adding that his position is self-proclaimed.
The case, she said, is pending before the Asantehene in Kumasi.
