A 36-year-old farmer, Papa Ndah, is believed to have been farming at the cemetery for several years, Amansan Television (ATV) reports.

Residents have since expressed fear that the situation may have affected their health.

His customers were said to be residents from Sekondi-Takoradi, Dixcove and Agona-Nkwanta.

The Queen mother of Agyambra, who resides at Busua, Nana Akissi Apenti III, said that the wife and children of the farmer have been living at the cemetery for over a decade now and have been farming there as well.

She said the community leaders have made efforts to move the farmer and his family from the place but that has not yielded any result.

“l have also lodged a formal complaint at the Environmental Health Department office at the Ahanta West District Assembly, waiting for their response,” she added.
