He continued by saying, the Odikro of Boahenekro in Nzema Aiyinasi, Nana Cudjoe says,because they are not willing to pay the Gh¢400.00 land levy,they shouldn’t bury any dead body of a Northerner on their lands anymore.He continued to say if you can’t send the body of a deceased member of your family to your hometown, then you should pay Gh¢1000.00 before you are going to be allowed to bury your deceased one.
