A former Magistrate with the Madina Court, Gladys Akoto Bamfo is protesting her forceful eviction from her official residence in Accra.

Mrs. Akoto Bamfo who is almost 60 years old says the official residence she occupied for many decades is currently locked up while she sits outside with her belongings.

According to her, the residence has been allegedly sold to a private individual.

Narrating the incident, she remarked that “I was there at dawn when some people came with armed policemen, forced the door open and started taking my things out. They didn’t show me any document and all I saw was that they just forced the door open and started taking my things out,” she narrated.

Mrs. Akoto Bamfo said although the people claimed their action was based on a court order; she wasn’t invited to court before the court order was given.

She remarked that although government had given her permission to live in the house, the people still threw her belongings out of the house.

“As far as I know, the Council of State says I should not be removed until the matter is determined so the National Security came to put a sign board that this is government property so nobody should touch but they took my things out and when I wanted to remove the rest of my belongings they said no, they won’t allow me to move the rest of my belongings out.”

“The people scattered all my documents, files, law books. I have worked for the state for 40 years so if anything, this is not how the matter should be handled. The court should have also given me time to move,” Mrs. Akoto Bamfo added.
