We're dying of Heart Attack: Wicked Land Guards pull down housing structures of Kojokrom Residents

I nearly cried when I watched citizens of Ghana suffer in deep pain. These were the same people who queued to cast their votes during the 2020 elections. 

It is as if they do not belong to this country, or perhaps their names have been officially deleted from the National Booklet. 

As a small community, they have always enjoyed their local lifestyles in a happy mood, amidst deprivation of certain basic amenities like better housing programs, improved standard of living, among others.

However, a certain group of landgaurds have suddenly and sadly taken away a priceless joy, they have been able to sustain all these years. 

It was really a very hearbreaking moment when these wicked and heartless men pulled down the structures of residents of Kojokrom, a village in the Central Region of Ghana. 

They left them with nothing, with the exception of their clothes and other basic stuff. Even mango and coconut trees in their compound were cut down.

Some of the residents cried in pain: "We're dying of heart attack already because we do not currently know where to lay down our heads."

I do not think this should be the right step to take even if these vulnerable people have violated the land and building construction laws of Ghana. 

It appears the law has been so cheap for these landgaurds to do whatever they want. They seem to always chance on the responsibilities assigned them, to crazily act unreasonably and unwisely. 

Meanwhile, Angel TV presenters have appealed to the Inspector General of Police of the Ghana Police Service, COP Dr. George Akuffo Dampare to come to the aid of these homeless residents.

However, according to some, the Interior Minister of Ghana, Ambrose Dery is gradually proving to Ghanaians that indeed, he has woefully failed them.
