Odomase Number 1


The Odumase people were joined some time after by a Denkyira prince and his followers. The prince, Kobina Antepim, had settled with a number of Denkyiras at Takyiman when he had failed to become Denkyirahene. There he had become a hunter, and it was when the Asante-Bono war of 1740 overtook him that he moved to Odumase, remembering the region to be rich in elephants. Thus today Odomase has two Amanhene, one a descendant of the Bantama stool, and the other of Kobina Antepim, the Denkyira prince
