Nii Anumle Oyanka Aryitey I, Oblieman Mantse has accused Director of Operations for the Ghana Police Service in the Greater Accra Region, ACP Kwesi Ofori, of claiming lands belonging to the Chiefs of the Ga State.
At a press conference near Pobiman toll booth along the Amasaman-Nsawam road, Nii Ayite Anumle Oyanka I, alleged that aside ACP Kwesi Ofori’s act of land grabbing in the region, he goes to protect a rich man buy name Frank Owusu, who is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the West African Decor Tiles to speedily build on the Abola Piam Stool Land near Sarpeiman/Pobiman in the Ga West Municipality.
He explained that initially, Frank Owusu was using the services of landguards, but after the landguards were overpowered, he (Owusu) realised Kwesi Ofori is also into the land grabbing business so he quickly went for his service to enable him (CEO) continue the construction on the Stool land.
Nii indicated that the Police Anti-Landguard Fraud Unit invited both him (Nii), stool landowners and Frank Owusu to provide authentic documents covering the said land in dispute but Owusu refused to appear, because he is using Kwesi Ofori to protect him to continue with the construction.
Nii, in the company of the Ga Djase-tse (king-maker) of the Abola Piam, further disclosed that they presented their documents but Owusu refused to turn up.
Nii hinted that the Director in charge of the Police Anti-Landguard Fraud Unit, asked ACP Kwesi Ofori, to come with Owusu but he also refused do so while the work continues even as at the time of filing this report.
To this effect, Nii Ayitey Oyanka I has appealed to President Nana Akufo-Addo and the Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante Apeatu, to intervene to stop ACP Kwesi Ofori else they would take the law into their own hands to fight whoever is on their stool lands.
“We want justice from President Akufo-Addo, and justice served us by the security agencies; it appears the politicians are also using power to grab our Accra lands,” Nii lamented.
He said it has become apparent that actions from the authorities in this country is pointing to the fact that the poor has no right over their lands/properties, because the rich could snatch them with money at any time with the help of police or powers that be.
