Farrar Avenue Structures Demolished

IMG-20130711-WA0013Squatters at Adabraka Farrar Avenue on Wednesday had the shock of their lives when their structures were demolished by the land owner. The demolition exercise followed a court order.

The squatters were ejected from their kiosks while motorbikes in garages, as well as tools and disused vehiclesof mechanics operating on the property were moved away from the land.
The land has been a subject of protracted dispute between Serv-U Farms Limited of Kaneshie Industrial Area (plaintiffs) and Mr. Garshong of Mamprobi Area (defendant).

In an interview with The Ghanaian Times, Mr. Prosper Nutsugah, the caretaker said he was not duly informed by the land owners he was representing that the land was in dispute.

“I did not see any order from the court, and the demolition happened this morning,” he said.
Raymond Tey, who is a squatter, said he was asleep at around 5 a.m. when he heard knocks by the people who ordered him to get out for the structure to be pulled down.

Esther Nyame, a beans seller who operates on the land said she had been told by their caretaker that a notice had been brought and they were supposed to vacate the premises in December this year.
Ms. Nyame said their rent was taken from them by a middleman to the landowners. - Bilkis Nuhu Kokroko &
