Gomoa residents seek IGP’s intervention in incessant attacks from land guards


Traditional leaders and residents of Gomoa Akraman in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region have appealed to the Inspector General of Police to intervene as a matter of urgency as they say land guards are taking over their community.

One person was shot dead whilst several others were injured following an invasion of the community by alleged land guards on Tuesday, November 8.

Head of the Asena Royal Family at Gomoa Akraman, David Acquah narrated the incident to JoyNews.


“On Tuesday, I was in town when they called me that Rahman with land guards has been on our lands. So the youth of the town also said they cannot sit down for Rahman to come and take our land.

“There was a clash between the land guards and my citizens. In fact, there was a gunshot and one of the land guards lost his life. As I speak now, four of my citizens have been arrested and detained at the Regional Police Headquarters,” he said.

According to David Acquah, the land guards are demolishing their structures and have laid claim to their lands.

He told JoyNews that the leader of the land guards, Rahman has been invited by the Police on several occasions but ignored the invite.

“We called on him at the Regional Police Command, he failed to come. The Police sent him to the Director-General of CID, but he failed to come. At the Director of Operations too, Rahman failed to respond. So it means that Rahman is bigger than Ghana Police that is why I am calling on the IGP to intervene in our issue.”
