Confusion As Some Elders In Anoe Angrily Exhume Corpses From A Disputed Land

Land disputes in Ghana are becoming very alarming to the extent that many people are losing the precious lives which God has given them. Even though no one in this whole world can claim that he or she through his or her ability brought the land to the earth, it is obvious that many people are and have been claiming ownership of lands since time immemorial.

These land issues mostly result in some dangerous crime which the country must find a way to control them. Like other land dispute issues, the people of Anoe have also have experienced one.

There was a struggle at close quarters at Anoe, a farming community in the Western Region, between some family members who went to bury a deceased relative at a disputed land and some elders after the latter exhumed the corpse.

According to reports gathered, the parcel of land was bequeathed to the community by the late chief to serve as a cemetery but has been sold out by the current chief.

Some youth in the community, however,r dissented by the move by the current chief and his elders since residents have to travel a long distance to access the old cemetery for burials.

They, therefore, decided to bury their relative, who recently passed on, at the new place but this did not go down well with some elders of the community.

The elders, therefore, went to the disputed land and exhume the coffin and directed the family to relocate the corpse to the old cemetery.

This led to a misunderstanding since the family decided to rebury their corpse on the disputed parcel of land.

The family has vowed not to allow the elders to exhume their relative again and has since reported the matter to the police.

Families in Ghana must try and resolve land issues with peaceful methods rather than these violent methods.
