The Asafohene of Toansah in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region, Nana Ahmed, has been injured following an attack on him by persons suspected to be land guards.
The thugs inflicted knife wounds on him and nearly chopped off his fingers.
Nana Ahmed had led the police to arrest some suspected land guards at Toansah,in the area, when the attack occurred.
Speaking to journalists, the chief said the Chief Executive (DCE) of Gomoa East District, Solomon DarkoQuarm, earlier banned the collection of ‘digging fees’ and land guard activities in the area.
“I earlier led the police to arrest some land guards who were working on land that did not belong to them. I went there again to inspect the land, only to meet these land guards.
They initially tried using a machete to hit one of my boys in the head, and I instead used my hand to prevent them, thus slashing my hand in the process. I want the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to arrest and deal with land guards in the area”, Nana Ahmed said.
The Assembly had earlier waged war against land guard activities and the payment of digging fees, but some land guard have disregarded the ban.
The chief of GomoaMamfam, Nana AbakaSika, has asked the DCE to take a firm stand on land guard activities, lamenting that his calls for an end to land guard activities have yielded no results. – Citinewsroom.com
