The chief of Brekusu in the Eastern Region, Odeefoo Nana Oteng Korankye II is calling on the government to withdraw troops of soldiers dispatched to a disputed parcel of land in Abokobi.
He said the peace and tranquility that has characterized Brekusu lands at Abokobi has been deeply disturbed by thugs misreading in military uniforms operating under the guise of fictitiously obtained land title by one Manasseh Resources Company Limited.
Odeefoo Korankye II told journalists at a news conference in Brekusu that the thugs who have little or no regard for the rule of law have demolished several properties, erected roadblocks and rerouted roads through the homes of several indigenes under the protection of some armed military men in Abokobi.
While pointing accusing fingers at the Numo Nmashie Family of Teshie for the situation Odeefoo Korankye II who is also the Akuapem Twafohene citing certain court documents on which the Family is claiming ownership of the lands said the said document had been quashed by the Supreme Court in a May 25, 2017 ruling.
He stated that the wanton destruction of the properties by Manasseh Resources Company Limited if not checked has the potential to create chaos with the possibility of reprisal attacks in the event that those on the receiving end take steps to defend themselves for the unprovoked destruction of their property.
The Akuapem Twafohene warned that his call on the government to withdraw the soldiers if it has no hand in the situation should not be misconstrued to be weakness.
“this should in no way bhe taken as a sign of weakness and the people of Brekusu who I preside over will not take kindly to any attempt by any group of persons or company operating outside the remint of the law to trample upon their inheritance and creat havoc with the intent on annexing what rightfully belong to them.”
