Sir John’s ownership of state lands is being investigated by the Special Prosecutor.

The Office of Special Prosecutor (OSP) has launched an inquiry into Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie aka Sir John, the late Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Forestry Commission.

According to the OSP, full-scale investigations into suspected corruption and corruption-related offenses would be launched.

This is in relation to the alleged illegal and improper acquisition of state lands in Accra’s Achimota Forest and Sakumono Ramsar reserve.

Kissi Agyebeng, the Special Prosecutor, signed a statement containing these allegations.

According to the statement, the late politician would be examined alongside other people for alleged illegal property acquisition.

“The Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources will play a crucial role in the investigations,” the statement said. “The Special Prosecutor has directed the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources to fully cooperate with the OSP in the investigations.”

Meanwhile, Corruption Watch, an anti-corruption , had petitioned the office to investigate Sir John’s ownership of state lands.

The petition sought, among other things, that the Special Prosecutor investigate how the late Sir John gained state lands, numerous acres in the Achimota Forest and Ramsar sites in Sakumono.
