There was a mass demolish exercise along the stretch of the Ofankor Barrier-Nsawam road. This was the exercise carried out to eradicate houses occupying land meant for road construction. However, the woman in your picture was seen ‘fighting’ the excavator driver and a policeman as they were about to demolish her house. She was seen holding the cloth of the excavator driver, angrily pulling him and telling him not to destroy her house. The excavator driver decided not to mind her as he was even sipping his drink.
The policeman came to the scene and asked the woman to leave the excavator driver to do his job. The woman replied to the policeman saying, “I will not leave him. You cannot abolish my house without compensation. Anytime a demolishing exercise is done, money is paid to the owners of the affected houses. Why is it that we haven’t received any compensation and you people are here to demolish our houses? Where do you want us to sleep? I will not agree”.
Some Ghanaians after coming across this video said that this is so sad. They should have at least given them some small compensation before the demolishing exercise.
