The Andani Royal Gate of Dagbon in the Northern Region has said it will not allow the final funeral rites of the late Ya-Na Mohammedu Abdulai IV to be performed at the Gbewaa Palace in Yendi.

This comes in breach of a peace roadmap by the Asantehene Committee of Eminent Chiefs which agreed for the funeral rites to be performed at the Palace.

Speaking at a ceremony at the forecourt of the Gbewa Palace Friday to mark the 14th anniversary of the demise of their overlord, Ya Na Yakubu Andani, Dabali said "We shall under no circumstance allow the performance of funeral of Mahamadu Abdulai at the Gbewa Palace. To allow this to happen is to reward crime since the reason they forcibly removed Ya-Na Yakubu Andani II from the palace to pave way for the funeral of  Mahamadu Abdulai."

He added that allowing the funeral to be held at the palace will mean glorifying wrong doings. According to him, Ya Na Abdulai was not a chief at the time of his death.

The Abudu Royals in Dagbon in the Northern Region earlier in February this year demonstrated in Yendi Township against the Asantehene led three eminent chiefs committee mediating the Dagbon chieftaincy impasse between the Abudu and Andani royals.
