East Dadekotopon Warns Stubborn Encroachers
The East Dadekotopon Development Trust would deal with individuals and organisations that encroach and improperly annex and acquire their lands, Nii Obour Fred Afful, Chairman of the Trust has announced.
He called on all those interested in their lands to be calm and supportive for them to put in place workable arrangements that would ensure smooth management and use of the lands.
'Matters regarding encroachers, illegal annexation and improper acquisition of trust lands would be dealt with in due course.'
Nii Afful who was addressing a news conference to explain some of the decisions the newly sworn-in trustees had taken, called on the public to deal with only the trustees and crosscheck for proper accreditation for persons from whom they would wish to purchase lands.
Apart from him, he named other Trustees as; Mr Samuel Sowah Oblejumah, Mr Jerry James Addoye, Mr Israel Gonti Adjei and Mr Enoch Addo Sowah.
The rest, he said were; Mr Joseph Odoi Mensah, Mr Andrew Nii Odoi Yemoh and Mr Robert Mensah Okpoti, explaining that Mr Joseph Odoi Mensah was subsequently replaced with Mr Daniel Lartey at the request of the Lenshi Quarter of the Trust.
According to Mr Afful, they were duly sworn into office on September 8, this year and are therefore the legitimate members to deal with for the next two years.
He therefore warned the public against dealing with people parading themselves as real owners of the land as that could place them in uncomfortable situations in future.
The East Dadekotopon Development Trust was established on April 10, 2002 as a result of the consent judgement obtained from the High Court in Accra on July 2001.
On its inception, the Trust inherited a parcel of land that was dully with the Land Title Registry in 2003 with certificate number GA 19310 and the Trust Land is to be held in trust and administered for the benefit for the citizens of La.
