The Oguaa Traditional Council (OTC) says it will soon summon some individuals who have defied the ban on drumming and noise making.

The ban which began on the 7th of this month is to be observed till the 23rd of August.

The perpetrators were caught engaging in acts that violate the rites and customs of the chiefs and people of Oguaa.

This, according to the chairman of the 2018 Oguaa Fetu Afahye Planning Committee, Mr. Perry Mensah, is serious disrespect to the customs of the land and the celebration of the Fetu Afahye.

Mr. Mensah told ATL FM News that the culprits will be paying fines between GHS 1,000.00 to GHS 2,500.00.

“If you violate the ban and you are caught, as an Organisation whether a bar or restaurant, your charge is GHS 2,500, with a sheep and two bottles of schnapps. An individual who violates the ban will have to also pay a GHS 1000.00, with a sheep and two bottles of Schnapps”.

 He advised people within Cape Coast to respect the ban since a task force will be monitoring activities and arrest culprits.
