- Hon. Kennedy Agyapong stated that the activities of land guards would soon come to a halt
- He added that a time is coming when people who purchased land would have no issues with regard to ownership
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has revealed that the reason former Director of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Commissioner of Police (COP) Bright Oduro was removed from office.
According to the MP, the CID boss was shown the door because he literally financed the activities of these land guards, especially in East Legon.
He further alleged that COP Oduro empowered the land guards to seize legally acquired properties and built theirs.
This, they claimed, was in retaliation for the killing of two persons by a team of 5 policemen from the Tema Regional Police Command
According to the MP, COP Oduro can no longer visit the East Legon police station to issue orders as he used to.
