Police declare Upper Dixcove chief wanted

Police in the Western region have declared the Paramount Chief of Upper Dixcove Obrempong Himan Dekyi wanted for allegedly orchestrating an attack on Nana Kwesi Agyemang, Paramount Chief of Lower Dixcove, and four of his sub chiefs on Monday morning.

According to the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Olivia Ewurabena Adiku, told Empire News’ Emmanuel Ohene-Gyan that Obrempong Himan Dekyi is on the run and all efforts to locate him to answer allegations made against him have not been successful.

“Himan Dekyi has to answer allegations made against him, the victims including the Nana Agyemang were found in his house.


There is uneasy calm at Lower Dixcove in the Ahanta West Municipality following the attack on the Paramount Chief of the area, Nana Kwasi Agyemang by unidentified assailants.

The traditional leader is alleged to have been stripped naked and abducted in what locals described as a Rambo style attack by unidentified masked men.

A relative of Nana Agyemang told Empire News’ Emmanuel Ohene-Gyan that the assailants used dynamite to destroy the heavily built gate leading to his house which gave them access to carry out their operations.

The operation which started around 2am Monday, July 22nd lasted for a little over 30 mins.
Distress calls made to the Agona-Nkwanta and other security agencies could not yield any meaningful results at the time.

But the police later discovered him at the camp of the assailants. It is unclear the cause of the attack.
