Mr. Tetteh, therefore, noted that the group has the right to prevent the Military from encroaching the land, pending the signing of the MoU to formalise it.

He said: “We’ve been waiting until quite recently we noticed that the Military has actually stepped onto the land again and they were grading the place with their bulldozers. So we wrote to the minister and told him that the people of La are ready to take possession of their land pending the signing of the document and so our chiefs gave us their blessing.

“The Ministry hasn’t said anything and we believe that silence means consent. That is why in conjunction with our chiefs we have come here today to take possession of the land,” Mr. Tetteh added.

He continued: “So if you see the people of La here today we are actually here to actually make good the promise that the president made to us.”
