A best friend and confidant of Otumfuo’s Asamponhene, Nana Kwadwo Afoduo Asamponhene recognized a report shared by myjoyonline.com reveals.
His arrest comes barely less than 24-hours after the 46-year-old direct relative of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II was murdered in what police suspect to be contract killing.

It is not clear if this ‘confidant’ was with the late chief before or during his killing but is expected to assist police in their investigations.
