The rival Ga Mantse installed Sunday, Nii Tackie Adama Latse II has taken over the Ga Mantse Palace at Kaneshie in Accra.
There were no reports of any confrontation in the takeover process.
It is also unclear the whereabouts of the ruling Ga Mantse, King Tackie Tawiah III.
Reports say his supporters are amassing in some parts of Accra to march to the palace to eject the occupying Ga Mantse because the police had failed to act.
Nii Boye Abe, the Spokesperson for the ruling Ga Mantse has confirmed that their supporters are gathering to march to the palace.
He said the takeover of the Ga Manste’s Palace was a coup d’etat which cannot be tolerated.
Nii Abe discounted claims that King Tackie Tawiah III abandoned the Palace ignominiously.
He explained that the Ga Mantse does not live in the Palace and that it cannot be the case the he was displaced by his rival Boni Nii Tackie Adama Latse II.
Joy News’ Nana Asuman who is at the Ga Mantse Palace, reported the palace is unusually calm with the rival Ga King and his people settling in.
There is not a single visible police officer in the palace but the police say they have plain-clothed policemen monitoring the situation.
The rival King, known in private life as George Tackie, is a UK-based businessman and was in Ghana for a holiday when he was captured, confined and installed as the Ga Mantse by some Ga kingmakers, as a successor to the late Ga Mantse, Nii Amugi II.
The installation was in fulfillment of a promise by the Gbese Mantse during the lifting of the ban on drumming and noise-making that a new Ga Mantse would be installed.
He claimed that while King Tawiah had been parading himself as the Ga Mantse, majority of Ga children were out of school – a situation he deemed unacceptable and which must be reversed.
But King Tackie Tawiah’s spokesperson said the installment of Nii Adama Latse II is a contemptuous act.
He told Joy FM’s Super Morning Show host, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah the Greater Regional House of Chiefs had ruled that King Tackie Tawiah could not be prevented from performing his duties a Ga Mantse.
Nii Boye Abe said to install a new Ga Mantse in spite of this ruling was to show gross disrespect of the laws of the land.
He believes the law is on the side of the ruling Ga Mantse.
