The Asogli traditional council in Ho has dismissed rumours about the supposed demised of the Agbogbomefia of the Asogli state and President of the National house of Chiefs, Togbe Afede XIV.
This follows weeks of wild speculations on social media that the revered traditional ruler and business tycoon had passed on outside the country.
A member of the traditional council, Togbe Adzimah IV, in an interview monitored by voltaonlinegh.com, described the rumours as palpable falsehood and a hoax.
He told Ho based Tosh TV that, Togbe Afede was alive and kicking; as such the social media speculations which have been making rounds in the last three months were outright fabrications by faceless individuals and thus urged the public to disregard it.
Togbe Adzimah who was seen in the TV footage seated next to the Agbogbomefia at the forecourt of the Asogli palace during a funeral, stated categorically in the interview conducted in the Ewe language that, “We do not know the source of this fabrication but I want to use this medium to let the whole world know that, the Agbogbomefia is not dead as being speculated.”
According to him, “Nothing absolutely has happened to him [Togbe Afede]; He is hale and hearty as you can see him seated here with us. So I want to caution those on social media to be extremely careful in spreading such unsubstantiated rumours.”
The chief further warned that the traditional council would henceforth take on any individual who would be caught spreading any such rumours against the Agbogbomefia.
