ECOMOG Squatters warned against rebuilding after devastating fire

Squatters around ECOMOG near the Kwame Nkrumah interchange in the Okaikoi South Sub-Metropolitan District have been cautioned to refrain from rebuilding wooden structures at the location affected by the Wednesday, June 5 fire outbreak.

The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Hon. Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus Glover , who gave the warning when he visited the fire scene in the company of the Mayor of Accra, said those who contravened the directive would be arrested and prosecuted in accordance with the law.

Mr. Glover said it was important to prioritise the safety of residents hence the directive not to come back to the area while citing the risk of another fire outbreak.

He noted that the area was a national asset, with a GRIDCO power transmission line running through it, adding that anyone found rebuilding or residing at the location would be prosecuted.
