The Paramount Chief of Edina Traditional Area, Nana Kodwo Condua VI, has reiterated that neither he nor his traditional council has banished anyone from the area, contrary to media reports in recent days. 

The Chief was reported to have mercilessly banished a 40-year-old fishmonger, Margaret Akuvi Akoto for refusing to pay a fine imposed on her for violating a law preventing her from selling smoked fish until a certain period.

The media reports quoted the Komenda Edina-Eguafo-Abrem Municipal Director of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), Mr Richmond Mensah as their source.
However, the CHRAJ Boss together with the alleged banished woman visited the palace of the Paramount Chief of the Edina Traditional area today where it was established that the story was far from the truth. The victim who expressed shock about the media report denied being the source of the information to the media. Nana Condua said the allegation against him is completely false. He said the Edina Traditional Council, which he heads, never banished the fishmonger. Explaining that, he only served as an arbiter between the Fishmongers Association and Ms Akoto to ensure she paid the fine imposed on her but never banished her.
