The descendants of the royal guards, are the majority of the natives living in the community. As the various wars of the Asantes came to an end, for a constitutional democracy to be established in all Ghana, the Adoato army was dissolved to make way for a nationwide insurance of government security.
Abeka Mansa who is a descendant of a royal warrior, lives close to Adoato market with her extended family.

She was slaughtered with machete from the back, eight times before she fell to the ground. The attacker went ahead to stab her from the front three times also, before leaving her to bleed to death.
She was found early in the morning, when her labourers tried going to her house to wake her up, because she was late for work. She was already dead when they found her.
