A suitcase belonging to Ghana’s King Otomfuo Osei Tutu II has been stolen from his country’s embassy in Oslo, Norweigan police and diplomatic sources said on Friday.

The king’s secretary, Kofi Owusu Boateng, declined to comment on the reported contents of the baggage, but confirmed that a suitcase has been stolen.

King Otomfuo Osei Tutu II was in Norway for a business summit.

The Ashanti monarch, one of Ghana’s most traditional tribal leaders, is one of the country’s most revered figureheads.

Ghana became a republic in 1960, three years after gaining independence
