The Greater Accra Regional Security Council (REGSEC) has issued a 48-hour ultimatum to developers on a 200-acre land belonging to the Animal Research Institute of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).
According to the notice persons found loitering on the fenced 200-acre parcel of land after the deadline will be severely dealt with in accordance with the law.
Greater Accra regional Minister, Henry Quartey who also heads the Greater Accra REGSEC, issued the threat at a press conference today said government will go ahead to demolish all unlawfully erected structures on the remaining lands without notice.
The Greater Accra regional Minister explained that though both the Adentan Municipal Assembly and the Animal Research Institute have issued warnings to developers to quit or stop operating within the perimeter left, they have fallen on deaf ears.
“REGSEC Is hereby giving a 48-hour notice from now to all those who are putting up such unauthorized structures within the fenced wall to pack their tools and materials from the land without fail.” …He emphasized.
The Animal Research Institute which originally was allocated over a 1,000-acre has lost more than three-quarters with the barely 200 acres left still being encroached by land guards.
The latest development on state lands come in the wake of recent public outcry after the leaked late ‘Sir John’s will exposed the grabbing of the Achimota Forest and the Sakumono Ramsar site by government officials and their apparatchiks.
