Trivia[]

History[]

The ankobia were a company of asafo musketmen who resided in the Ashanti capital as royal guards and police. The Ashanti were among the first in the region to form a proficient dedicated musketeer corps, and – wisely – tended to fire their muskets from the hip, a tactic that precluded extensive damage from firearm malfunctions common at the time.
