[Ghanacrimes.com] — Wives of police men at the Cocoa Marketing Board in Accra yesterday embarked a demonstration over felling of trees by a private building contractor. Speaking to the media, Madam Joyce Amponsah, said they were awoken by the noise of an excavator pulling down trees on their compound on Thursday.
According to a contractor named Mr. Kwame Owusu, he is to pull down the trees on the compound to pave way for the construction of a new building project for the Police. The Police wives have however refuted this explanation saying that the Police land has been illegally sold to Kwame Owusu who wants to demolish the police housing building for the construction of a private building.
The Police men’s wives are therefore calling on the government to stop the contractor from demolishing their homes. The operators of the excavators as of yesterday have left the place with their excavator.
