The ArdeNkpa Family of Plerno(James Town) has through their lawful attorney Mr. Frank K. Lewi issued a statement aimed at setting the records straight on who really is or are the true landlords or owners of Kokrobite lands.
In a statement signed by Mr. Lewi, he gave a background to the history of the Kokrobite land as a 4,786 acre stretch of land which was acquired by NiiArdeNkpa VI in 1976 and bequeathed to his future generates through a Statutory Declaration L/R 2660 which was witnessed by NiiOfeiAnsah II.
The 4,786 acre land which is registered in the name of the ArdeNkpa Family covers Kokrobite, Langma, and Tuba also known as Takyi man.
He recounted that “when you read that statutory declaration you realize that NiiOffei II had admitted that he is a caretaker chief acting on behalf of NiiArdeNkpa family and so shall his descendant also be after him”.
Mr. Lewi narrated that as it stands now, it’s only the ‘Mantse’ of Plerno who is NiiArdeNkpa and the Head of Family NiiAyinsahSasraku III who can alienate portions or parcels of those lands under the 4,786 acre area as mentioned above with NiiOfei III(now) who at all material times only bear witness to grants made by the family.
He said, the Statutory Declaration affected NiiOfei II and so does it affect the current caretaker Chief of KokrobiteNiiOfei III.
“therefore, we are by this publication throwing caution to unsuspecting public that any grants made by NiiOffei III on his own volition remains invalid, null and void and this applies to all other grants made by some imposters including Dada Joe, Daniel Tagoe, Armah Fit and AryeeFushie.
