Residents of East Legon, Adjirngano, and nearby communities in the Greater Accra Region are living in fear as they are being attacked by armed thugs otherwise known as Land Guards.

According to the residents, the Land Guards are terrorizing them and forcing them out of their properties.

President of the Pekan Enclave East Legon Residents Association, Captain Budu Koomson (Rtd) said that these armed thugs fire gunshots sporadically, and this scares people in the community.

He said that some of the residents have even been physically assaulted over the matter.

“Unfortunately, the majority of residents believe that the East Legon District Police Commander, who is known to residents only as DSP Anokye, has done very little, if not condoning and conniving with the illegal activities of the [Land Guards].

“We are appealing to the Inspector General of Police to intervene in this matter to save the lives of innocent children, vulnerable individuals and properties,” Captain Budu Koomson (Rtd) said at a press conference over the weekend.

Despite attempts by the security agencies to end the activities of Land Guards in communities, especially in developing areas, these armed thugs continue to terrorise residents.

Meanwhile, the police is yet to comment on the situation in East Legon and other adjoining communities.
