Nma Dzorn, Adjiringano lands protected by Police – Nungua Mantse parries land guard claim

The Paramount Chief of Nungua Traditional Area, Professor Odaifio Welentsi III, has stated that the paramountcy deals with only the police and not land guards in protecting its lands.

He was responding to allegations of the use of land guards by the owners of Top Kings, a real estate company, to harass residents of Nma Dzorn and Adjiringano, Accra.

Mr Danso owns a 62-acre land at Borteyman.

Niibi Ofori Quaye, a direct uncle to the Paramount Chief of Nungua Traditional Area, told the Ghanaian Times last week that Mr Benjamin Danso, the owner of Top Kings, had taken advantage of a Supreme Court decision in his favour to take over lands and properties outside his 62-acres of land.

But, Professor Odaifio Welentsi III in reaction told the Ghanaian Times on Friday that the parcel of land which had been a subject of dispute for decades was the property of the Nungua Stool and Top Kings Limited.

The Nungua Paramount chief said the allegations were untrue and calculated to tarnish the image of Mr Danso who had won judgments at the High Court, Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court.

He said Mr Danso was working on the land under the authorisation of the paramountcy, and urged members of the public to disregard allegations of harassment of residents by land guards.

At the time of filing this report, a team of policemen had been dispatched to the land to maintain law and order.

Odaifio Welentsi III, who is the Vice President of Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs, said the paramountcy would use legitimate means to protect its property.

He appealed to persons fuelling tension for their personal gains to desist from that conduct and resort to the law to address any issue.

Speaking to the Ghanaian Times, Mr Danso said he was a law abiding citizen and would never engage land guards to harass any one.

He said he litigated the land dispute case in court for 20 years and got judgement in his favour.

On the allegations made by Niibi Quaye, Mr Danso said Niibi would never utter those words.

The Supreme Court has in a ruling few years ago declared Top Kings as the owners of a 62-acre land situated at Borteyman.
