1. King Coffee of the Ashanti invaded allied Fanti territory early in 1873, and it was decided to send a punitive expedition against him under the command of Sir Garnet Wolseley. The expedition reached Kumasi in January 1874 and the Ashanti interior was opened for British trade, and, a more important objective, the suppression of the slave trade.
