The Inspector General of Police, James Oppong-Boanuh, Head of the Operations Unit of the Accra Regional Police Command, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Kwesi Ofori Ofori together with others have been restrained from entering, clearing and developing any portions of the Okpon We Family land around East Legon in the Greater Accra Region.
An Accra High Court in Suit No: LD/1227/2019 granting an Order for Interlocutory Injunction, has ordered the police chiefs and their allies not to venture onto the said land.
In a Writ filed by Enoch Francis Annan Tetteh (Plaintiff) on September, 26, 2019 in support of Motion on Notice for an Order for Interlocutory Injunction, the Plaintiff claimed the Defendants; Sarah Agyaa Forkuo, Rosemary Thompson, The Attorney General Office, Inspector General of Police, ACP Kwesi Ofori and ACP Pabi Gariba have been interfering on the Okpon We family land.
The action the Plaintiff indicated was being led by Sarah Agyaa Forkuo who is using the police to go onto the land to create confusion and to harass occupant on the land.
According to the Plaintiff it will only take the Court to prevent the Defendants from coming and taken undue possession of the land.
