NANA YAW Osei, a Kumasi-based legal practitioner, is pursuing Nana Akwasi Agyemang, a former Chief Executive of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), for payment of services he rendered to him.

The lawyer, who doubles as the Chairman of the Ashanti Regional branch of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA), is requesting the former KMA boss to pay him legal services he rendered to him in respect of the sale of 20 plots of land.

“Please you have two days within which to make the payment or I will use any means available to me as a lawyer to take what is lawfully mine,” he warned.

In a letter dated March 15, 2012, addressed to Nana Akwasi Agyemang, the lawyer said the former KMA boss had asked him to author a letter to the chief of Kenyase, reverting some 19 acres of land that KMA had acquired during his tenure.

“The letter was duly done and Nana Kenyasehene, knowing very well that you were working on the land with some other persons, graciously granted you 20 plots of land to be shared among those you were working with,” he told Nana Akwasi Agyemang.

He also said occasionally, he drove Nana Akwasi Agyemang in his car to various places in connection with his dealings relating to the land.

As a lawyer, per the 2011 Scale of Fees of the Ghana Bar Association (GBA), Nana Yaw said he was entitled to 10 to 20 percent of the value of the land.

“I am therefore, by this letter, demanding 15 percent of the total value of the 20 plots of land which has been paid for by the buyers.

Meanwhile, Nana Yaw Osei has told DAILY GUIDE in an interview that Nana Akwasi Agyemang, without any provocation, intentionally picked a quarrel with him when the buyers of the plots of land were about to make the payment in his house.

He alleged that the former KMA boss had threatened to shoot him in his house at the instance of the purchasers, a threat the lawyer said he dared him to carry out.

Besides the threat to kill him, he said Nana Akwasi Agyemang also threatened to order his boys to subject him to severe beatings.

Reached for his comments, Nana Akwasi Agyemang denied knowing Nana Yaw Osei or his chamber, let alone hire his legal services.

He asked the lawyer to produce the letter he sent to the chief of Kenyase, a community near Kumasi, to buttress his claims.
