Togbe Kofi Nyarku apologises to Della Sowah

Togbe Kofi Nyarku of Sovie has rendered an unqualified apology to Member of Parliament (MP) for Kpando, Hon Della Sowah for defamation of character and exposure to public harm.

Sometime in 2015, Della Sowah’s campaign manager in Sovie was murdered. Police during their investigations arrested a number of people including Togbe Kofi Nyarku also known as George Prika.

The murder led to a divided community. Togbe Prika blamed the MP for the area for their arrest and trial.

He wrongly accused her of being responsible for the divided community.

Togbe also wrongly accused Mrs.Sowah of installing a rival chief, Togbe Yaw Nyarku.

Della Sowah after defending herself for several years, took a bold step last year for a resolution of the issue, only for the Chief to repeat his allegations again to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) executives who paid a courtesy call on him.

According to Della Sowah that was the last straw that broke the camel’s back. She threatened legal action, leading to the Chief, rendering an unqualified apology.

In a letter of apology to the MP he stated “Since 2016 that I have been accusing you of being the brain behind the Sovie Chieftaincy issues for the first time you have officially written to me through your lawyers that you don’t have a hand in the Sovie Chieftaincy issue.”

He added, “For that matter, I am sincerely apologising to you through your lawyers, and I promise never to mention your name anywhere the Sovie Chieftaincy issue is concerned.”
