Heavy security from the Accra Regional Police Command of the Ghana Police Service supervised the demolition of two warehouses situated on a 2.59-acre land at Flower Port on the Spintex Road in Accra.
The land, which is said to belong to Yehans International Ghana Limited, has been under litigation with Martey Tsuru Family since 2006, until the Supreme Court on October 24, 2018 ruled in favour of the company.
Accompanied by the police to enforce the ruling of the Court, the taskforce ejected occupants of the two warehouses and pulled down the building.
Counsel for Yehans International Ghana Limited, Kofi Owusu Bosompem, explained to journalists that the case traveled from the High Court, Court of Appeal and finally to the Supreme Court.
He said while the matter was still in court, Daniel McKorley, who is the Chief Executive Officer for MacDan Companies, allegedly took advantage of the litigation and constructed two warehouses on the land.
Lawyer Bosompem explained that when the matter was taken to the police, Mr. McKorley allegedly denied knowledge of the warehouses even though their development was ongoing on the land.
He said they went to the court for writ of possession to carry on the demolition and on March 26, 2020, they notified the occupants of their intention to take possession of the land.
The lawyer said in spite of the notice, they did not bother to put in any claims, hence the decision by the Yehans International Ghana Limited to enforce the ruling with the aid of the police.
