Heads and elders of Nii Owoo family of the Greater Accra Region, yesterday staged a massive protest against the unlawful and illegal demolition exercise by the Comet Real Estates on the 300-acre land situated at Aboasa, a fast developing community in the Ga East Municipality in Accra.
The angry family members numbering over four hundred, held placards with inscriptions some of which read: “Police are helping Comet Properties to steal our titled land, no. Ga 30829 , We do not want blood to shed on our land before government to come solve the problem, President John Dramani Mahama must Inspector General of Police (IGP) and Rose Bio Atinga to order. Because they are supporting the Chairman of Comet Real Estate Groups, Mr. Kwaku Keremanteng to take our land from us”.
The demonstrators expressed grave concern over the manner in which Mr. Kwaku Kyeremanteng Chairman of Comet Real Estates encroached and taken over their landed properties.
The protesters chased out all workers who were earlier warned by the family not to continue developing the land from the site, with many of them pulling down already erected pillars,pegs and destroying building blocks on site.
According to them, Comet Real Estate’s illegal activity is becoming unbecoming and that the time has come for the Owoo family to stand up for their rights. They are also alleging that Comet Real Estates is using the police to guard the land.
Addressing a news conference after the protest at the site yesterday, a member of the heads of Nii Owoo Family, Nii Kwate Owoo indicated that although Comet Real Estates has some parcels of land in the area, the 300- acre land which is part of Greater Accra Region, which the company has begun developing is not part of Comet’s properties.
Mr. Owoo showed documents of land title registration from the Lands Title Registry No GA 38029-Vol. 06-Folio 895 and documents covering Administration Boundary between Greater Accra and Eastern Region Vis-à-vis Nii Owoo Family Land at Aboasa (Survey Plan No. X 3145) to support their claims indicating that indeed the land truly belongs to the family.
According to the Land Title Certificate which Mr. Owoo presented to the media present, the Nii Owoo family of Accra is registered as proprietor of an estate of freehold subject to the reservation, restrictions, encumbrances, liens and interest of piece of land in extent 54.78 hectares more or less situated at North Kwabenya (Aboasa) in the Greater Accra Region.
