Before Ghana could become one nation, there were a lot of things that happened in the past that led Ghana to become Ghana. Many great leaders of each tribe fought with their life and help gain peace and living for their people.
Nana Tweneboa Kodua, the paramount chief of Kumawu, gave his life to ensure the Asantes' victory. Komfo Anokye requested him to do so in the War of Independence to ensure the Asante Kingdom's liberation from the Denkyiras.
The Asantes went to war with Ntim Gyakari, the king of Denkyiras, after he made some demands that enraged them. Tweneboa Kodua was one of three Asante volunteers who gave their lives to ensure the Asante nation's victory. Even though he was armed, he was asked to lead the marching soldiers and was not allowed to shoot. As a result, he was killed. After he volunteered, he demanded that no one from his state be used as a sacrifice in any way.
Ntim Gyakari was apprehended and beheaded in Feyiase. Denkyira was then absorbed into the Asante Kingdom.
