The Chief Executive Officer of McDan Shipping Company, Dr. Daniel McKorley and his two confederates involved in a land brawl have switched to playing hide-and-seek with a court bailiff after allegedly disrespecting an interlocutory injunction restricting them from developing and building on the land in dispute.
Attempts to serve the three with the motion on notice (application for an order for committal for contempt of court order 50 r.1 C.I. 47) according to an Affidavit of Non-Service by a Bailiff, Emmanuel Amartey and the General Jurisdiction court at Accra have all proved futile.
According to the affidavit, the offices and residences of each of the three, Dr. Daniel McKorley, Mr. Anthony Abotsi Afriyie and Mr. Sariki Lawal were visited on the 12th, 15th and 17th of August, 2016, but on all occasions none,
Dr. McKorley in particular was not available to be served the notice.
Were it not for the plea of one Claude Oppong, a lawyer who had had a stint with the whole story and how it was panning out in the court, the Justice would have issues an order for substituted service for the bailiff to post the notice on the Ghanaian nabob’s buildings.
The story goes that, an order for an interlocutory injunction was granted by the General Jurisdiction court of the High Court on 17th February, 2016 restraining Dr. Daniel McKorley, the CEO of McDan Shipping Company Limited, his two cohorts, their agents, workmen, privies, assigns and all others claiming through them from developing the land in dispute pending the final determination of the suit.
In a gleeful violation of the interlocutory injunction, the three, their agents, workmen, privies and assigns have alleged disobeyed the court order and are developing the land in dispute with the building of huge warehouse on it.
The land in contention, court documents reveal forms part of Nungua Stool ancestral land acquired over several generations back by settlement.
