Nii Saban Atsen VII also in the dismissal letter stated that Nii Nortey Adumuah IV in spite of the indefinite suspension on June 21, 2022, together with his family head superintended over an unauthorized launch of a strange seal for the Osu Stool.
“You have overstepped your bounds as Oshiahene whose role is only restricted to the Osu Mantse Stool room…The Osu Kinkawe Dzaase led by Nii Saban Atsen VII (Dzaasetse) has, therefore, decided to revoke your letter of appointment as Oshiahene of Osu Kinkawe dated 19th April 2021. You are, hereby, notified of your dismissal with immediate effect and advised to cease, henceforth, from holding yourself as such in your own interest”, captured in the dismissal letter.

“All those who deal with him in such matters do so at their own risk”, the statement warned.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the Seal of Osu remains the same as indicated above; there have neither been any discussions on the introduction of a new seal nor the contemplation or a launch of a new Seal for Osu”, the statement announced.
