Okomfo Anokye Sword, as it is commonly called, is a sword that was implanted in the soil more than 400 years ago.
History has it that the popular fetish priest pronounced that no one would be able to remove the sword when he pushed it into the ground.
This was in 1695 and until now, the Okomfo Anokye Sword is still in the ground.
He earned the title “Okomfo” when he became a traditional priest. It is believed that the Ashanti state, would collapse should the sword ever be pulled out of the ground.
