The Adam Kwartei Royal Family of the Gbawe Stool and Osamampa Estate Developers at Akokorfoto, a suburb of Dansoman, has reiterated their call on government and security agencies to execute a court order ordering the Accra Metropolitan Assembly to demolish illegal structures at the site.

The Kwartei family is wondering what is preventing Assembly from executing the Mandamus order granted by an Accra High Court on January 14, 2013to carry out a demolition of all unauthorized structures, has still not been done.

Speaking in an interview with the paper, Head of Gbawe Kwartei Family, Nii Adam Kwartei said he suspects a foul play by some government officials supporting the illegal occupation of the land.

Nii Kwartei explained that one Otinto has been boasting of having strong ties with the ruling National Democratic Congress, especially office of the Greater Accra Regional Minister and thus continue to tell prospective buyers and developers that government will not demolish Akokorfoto for his sake.

Rosina Aryee, a land owner with documents said her workers on the land have been confronted several times by land guards believed to be boys of Otinto ever since she secured her title of ownership transferred to her from the Gbawe Kwartei family.

She further wondered that any time she lodge a complaint to the police on encroachment on her land, nothing at all was done either in the form of arrest or invitation for interrogation after submitting all legitimate documents to prove her ownership.

Mrs. Aryee further noted that from all the documents made available to them, and the subsequent follow ups and search conducted on the said land, it is obvious that the parcel of land does not belong to the Sempe Stool or Otinto.

Meanwhile, Nii Adote Obuor II, who also claims to be chief of Sempe has disassociated himself from anything to do with Akokufoto land and prayed that due process would be followed to demolish structures at the site.

Also, a search on the Akokorfoto land has revealed that developers at the site have no documents to prove their ownership of the land or develop the site.
