Residents and developers at Kordiabe, a developing community within the Shai-Osudoku District in the Greater Accra Region are living in fear as a result of the increasing land guards activities within the area for about one year.
The situation is brewing high tension in the community as the land guards are alleged to be working for a man called “The Boy”.
According to report, these land guards do not only cause damage to uncompleted buildings and footings of developers but also inflict machete wounds on residents and developers.
The community which hitherto was a peaceful one has been inundated with activities of land guards in recent times. The situation has become a source of worry for both residents and developers.
“This is not the first, second or third time we are being attacked and our properties being destroyed by land guards purported to be working for the “The Boy” and it is becoming alarming as they live in fear.” A citizen, Daniel noted
Several other developers and residents complained of the intimidation and brutalities they face in the hands of these weapon wielding land guards.
Some of the developers at Kordiabe few days ago had their footings and structures destroyed by ‘The Boy’ who claims to be the legitimate owner of the lands in question.
Residents are calling on the Inspector General of Police and relevant security agencies to come to their aid as their lives are in danger.
There’s been several reported cases to the police at Doryumu in connection with the activities of this land guards and their pay master, ‘The Boy’ but no actions have been taken against them.
