From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Ashanti-Akim-Akwapim War, also known as the Ashanti Invasion of the Gold Coast was the expansion of West African Empire of Ashanti against the alliance of Akim and Akwapim tribes from 1814 until 1816. European colonial powers were also involved in conflict.

In 1814 the Ashanti, under the leadership of Asantehene Osei Bonsu, defeated the outnumbered yet brave Akim-Akwapim alliance, but when they followed up their victory by pillaging the city of Accra, instead of attacking the Europeans, they lost a valuable ally in the Ga people.
