According to the accompanying affidavit, GNA reported that one DSP Gyasi had been sued for harassing workers on his land.

Despite the court order against the police, Boahen claims officers acting on the orders of the IGP when they arrested men on the land.

“The respondents have disregarded the judgement and have been consistently harassing, intimidating, bullying, arresting and detaining my agents who have gone unto my land which the honourable court has ruled in my favour,” his writ said.

According to the woman, her property has been resold to land guards, and all efforts to get it back have proven futile.
