- Landlord in Kumasi is disturbed over the non-payment of rent by the Ghana police
- The landlord claims a police department has failed to pay the rent of three officials
An angry landlord at Kumasi in the Ashanti Region has petitioned the Inspector General of Police (IGP) for defaulting in the payment of rent owed him by four police officers.
The 78-year-old landlord, Appiah Danquah, is thus threatening to curse the police should they fail in the payment of the outstanding rent.
Appiah Danquah has narrated how the said police officers had refused to vacate the premises after raising concerns to their officials in the Kumasi Police Service and that if the IGP refused to settle the arrears as requested by the court by October 15, he would invoke all the gods in Ghana, including Antoa, to kill all the police personnel occupying the building and then use their family members as thanks offering to the gods.
It all happened when the chief of Asokore Manpong ha srequested from the landlord to help some officials of the police with accommodation as they waited for the construction of a police station to be constructed.
“I am directed by the Director General/Service to inform you that the rental value of your property has been assessed at four hundred and eighty Ghana cedis (GH¢ 480.00) per month with effect from April 1, 2013.” This meant that each police officer occupying any of the four rooms would pay GH¢ 480.00 per month, the landlord revealed.
Meanwhile, officials of the Ghana police say they are investigating the development.
