Senya Breku residents demand return of land from military

Traditional leaders and residents of Senya Breku in the Awutu Senya District of the Central Region are demanding the return of portions of their land currently occupied by the Ghana Armed Forces.

According to the residents, the land was handed over to the military by the Gomoa Fetteh traditional authorities during a ceremony on December 8, 2023, without their consent.

They claim this is an attempt to snatch their property and are calling on the government to intervene.

The Acting President of the Senya Breku Traditional Council, Nenyi Kweku Kormittey III, expressed displeasure over what he described as intimidation by the military.

He said the community is growing impatient and may be left with no option but to face the military, who have since occupied the land and are developing it at a fast pace.

The residents are also calling on the Central Government and the Ministry of Interior to address the matter urgently to prevent any bloodshed.

The issue is currently pending before the Supreme Court, but the residents say they cannot wait any longer for a resolution.

The Youth Leader of Senya Breku, Francis Baidoo, and the Chief of Senya Akwasa, Nana Okromo, also spoke to Metro News, urging the government to take immediate action to address the issue.

Metro TV will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as necessary.
