Information gathered by DGN Online indicates that an overnight demolition in Santeo Jordan, in the Kpone-Katamanso District in the Greater Accra region, has left several residents homeless and in a state of despair.
Report indicates that the estate developer behind the demolition claims ownership of the land, which spans over 10 acres. This has left the community, including mothers and children, in a dire situation.
Residents said they have been living on the land for almost a decade and are struggling to come to terms with the sudden destruction.
Many had invested significant time and resources into building their homes, only for them to be torn down overnight.
One resident, whose property had been flattened, expressed his refusal to relocate.
According to him, he was promised 50 bags of cement and blocks to rebuild elsewhere, but he adamantly stated that he would stay and fight for his home.
The impact of the demolition has brought immense hardship to the community. People are left without shelter and minimal support, leading to uncertainty and despair.
This unexpected turn of events has left residents scrambling to find alternative housing options and support systems.
The Greater Accra Regional authorities have yet to respond to the situation.
The affected residents are hoping for assistance and justice, as they attempt to rebuild their lives amidst this devastating event.
There are fears of an outbreak of disease if authorities fail to find solution to the situation.
