A land dispute between two sons of the late Edward Osei Boakye popularly known as Boakye Mattress has taken a sensational turn with accusations surfacing that the Ghana police service is aiding one of the brothers, Gerald Boakye in defiance of a pending Supreme Court ruling. The controversy centers around a property initially owned by the late Edward Osei Boakye, who purportedly sold the land to his son, Yaw Boakye before his demise.
The late Edward Osei Boakye’s will allegedly designates Yaw Boakye as the rightful owner of the disputed land, a fact that has become a focal point in the ongoing family feud. However, other siblings contest the legitimacy of the sale, leading to a protracted legal battle that is currently awaiting a court ruling to bring closure to the contentious matter.
Recent police deployment with vehicle registration number GP 865 with five armed officers to guard the property, however, suggest a new layer of complexity to the dispute. Sources close to the situation claim that certain members of the Ghana police force are actively assisting one of the siblings in disregarding the impending court decision, allowing them to occupy the disputed land despite the unresolved legal proceedings.
The accusations have sent shockwaves through the community, with residents expressing concerns over potential breaches of ethical standards and the impartiality of law enforcement. An investigation has been initiated to determine the extent of police involvement and whether any misconduct has occurred in the process.
The alleged sale of the land to Yaw Boakye adds another dimension to the controversy, as it appears to be rooted in the late father’s explicit wishes. Supporters of Yaw Boakye argue that his father’s will clearly outlines the intended transfer of the property, emphasizing the importance of respecting the deceased’s wishes in settling the inheritance matter.
As the legal battle continues, the community finds itself grappling not only with familial discord but also with questions regarding the role of law enforcement in facilitating or hindering the resolution of the dispute. The pending court ruling is now anticipated with heightened scrutiny, as its outcome may not only decide the rightful owner of the land but also shed light on the alleged police involvement and its potential implications for the local justice system.
