The history of Seikwa

The tradition of the origin of Seikwa in the Tain District of Brong Shadow,disclose that their ancestors originated from the Kingdom of Bouna in the north eastern part of Cote d’ivoire.
The Seikwa people live together with other related groups,which is Badu and Bunn people around the 1580s.
Tradition says that the first monarch,is Nana Kaka and was married a woman from Bouna named Jofotia and gave birth to a son called Akrosoma.
The son was famous and brave through that he assumed the leadership of his whole army.
They experienced frequent wars around that area,so they decided to migrate to Kumasi to join their brothers which is the Ashantis ,for safety and protection .
Some people was not in support,but the majority accepted and agreed ,so they started the journey on their way going,they went to a place called Angenye .
They settled there for the rest of the family members from Nasana .
They later move on to a place called Yerekae in 1682 in the Gyaman land,the lady which is (Obaapanin) of the family which was called Nana Davunsee was old and weak which lead her to death.
Yerekae means the old lady can’t continue the journey,so some of the people were left there to bury her Yerekae whiles others moved to Sampa.
When they came to Sampa there was a war raging Tonye near Banda between the Bandas and the Ashantis people in 1730s.
The people of the Ashantis cried to Nana Kaka for help,Akrosoma the well known warrior was elected to lead a great army which was matched towards them and Akrosoma won the battle.
The death of Nana Kaka was revealed to Akrosoma at Tonya,due to that Akrosoma committed suicide. This constitutes the present oath of the people Nana Kaka died at Sampa in 1731 and was succeeded his nephew Kalimeh in 1731.
So the Ashantihene (Nana Osei Tutu) heard their bravery and he extended an invitation through Ampabamehene to bring them to Kumasi. However some of the people were left at Sampa to take care of the body of the monarch,Nana Kaka.
Nana Kalimeh in 1741 lead  the people through Nsuatre,Dominase Akropong in Ashanti. From Akropong they settled at Ampabame,after staying for so time and they went to sargranti war of 1874 with the Ahantis against the British and became successful.
After the war they came and settled at Amakom in Kumasi. Obaapanim Afia Bosompenyaal,saw that her people was being using frequently for wars by the Ashantis. so in her own mind ,she fabricated a story that she was not finding suitable chewing stick (pasogo) which is the local language called in Nkroan.
She told Ashantihene about it and convinced him that on their way to Kumasi they found a lot of suitable chewing sticks tress in the savanna areas,so they should go there for some.
Ashantehene conceded to this idea and released Okyeame Banih to take them to the grassy land. So when they are coming they settled at Akomadan,Nkenkansu and Techiman in 1875. From Techiman they discovered a river Nyamepene and followed it along the banks to Nkorankwagya near Nsawkwa.
In 1876,under Ekyi Kofi they came to Domyaa from Nkorankwagya. At Domyaa,there was misunderstanding between Nana Banim and his nephew (the Badu people ) so the fought and fell apart. The Nkoran (seikwa people)
Moved from Domyaa to Tomeanya(Tanokrom) means my own town. From there they moved to Domeabra. At there there,there was drought so a certain hunter called Bofo Dabratia,in his hunting expedition he saw a river,which was flowing from a mountain .
He told the story to the then chief through kyeame Brempon Banim and said in twi ”ensuo yi da ho res33 kwa” hence Seikwa. They move to the river side a built a house near the river bank. The house later on collapsed on two brothers of the chief. The then take a move from the river to the present place SEIKWA in about 1877 under the leadership of Nana Ekye Kofi I.
