Woman convicted of double land sale …2 sons discharged

 The Accra Circuit Court has sentenced a 68-year-old woman to a fine of GH¢3,600.00, for double sale of land.

In default, Ms Comfort Ayikai Ayie would serve 12 months imprisonment.

Ms Ayie was also convicted for conflicting transaction of land by the court presided over by Mrs Susanna Eduful, but sentence was deferred till November 8, 2023.

Meanwhile, Ms Ayie’s two sons, Philip Kpakpo Adotey and Moses Adotei Kpakpo, who were charged together with her, were discharged by the court.

Police Chief Inspector Chris­tine Bansah told the court that in 2014, Mr Alexander Bosompem Kwabi, the complainant, bought land situated at Ayikai Doblo, from Nii Adjei Koja Ayikai and Sowah Onulpa, heads of Ayikai Family of Ayikai Doblo.

The prosecution said in 2016, the family gave indenture and site plan to the complainant, who constructed a two-bedroom footing on the land.

Chief Insp Bansah said when the complainant went to contin­ue work on his building, Ms Ayie approached him (complainant) alleging that her family members from whom he bought the land did not give her any money from the transaction.

The court heard that Ms Ayie, therefore, claimed ownership of the land and demanded to re-sell it to the complainant.

Chief Insp Bansah said the complainant at a meeting with Ms Ayie and her sons, agreed to pay GH¢3,000 to her, and a member of the family also agreed to release GH¢3,000 to her (Ms Ayie), totaling GH¢6,000.

The prosecution said the com­plainant paid GH¢3,000 to Ms Ayie as agreed, but the convict later sold the land to Ahenkora
