- Police, land guards pull down the wall of Hassan Ayariga's yet-to-be constructed hospital and children’s park
- According to Ayariga, the walls of the project were demolished because he had no building permit
Founder of the All People's Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga, says some New Patriotic Party (NPP) executives are behind the demolition of his property located at Haatso in Accra.
The politician has been in the news in the past few days after it emerged that his yet-to-be constructed hospital and children's park have been pulled down.
Speaking to Joy News, Mr. Ayariga said the demolition of his property was deliberately done, even when he was not a fault.
He accused some members of the ruling NPP, the Abokobi Municipal Assembly and the Police, of taking the laws into their own hands.
According to him, the Police acted as land guards to assault his workers before pulling down the structures.
He explained that demolition was done despite him issuing a crossed cheque of GH¢2,400 to the Ga East Municipal Assembly as commitment fee to convince the authorities that he was willing to pay whatever amount they would demand to grant him the building permit.

However, he said, the Assembly rejected the money because they wanted it in cash and not in cheque form.
He condemned the Police for their involvement, describing their actions as a “misconduct”.
