Attorney for Nmati Dzrasee family raises red flag

…Cautions unscrupulous developers in cantonment

The lawful attorney of Nmati Dzrasee family of La, Frank Kofi Lewi of Best Link Ventures has issued a press statement to caution the developers behind what he described as the unlawful and unscrupulous development of lands in Cantonment and around the Airport without proper documentation from the rightful allodial owners.

In a joint statement signed by a team of lawyers representing Frank Lewi from law firms namely Pwamang & Co., Zoe, Atta Akyea & Co. and Abada & Co., they intimated that Nmati Dzrasee family of La is the pre-acquisition allodial owners of all Cantonments/Airport lands and that they are under the instruction of their client to caution the general public and unsuspecting individuals who may have wrongfully acquired and developed parcels of these lands.

The statement emphasized that Nmati Dzrasee Quarter of La are the lawful owners of those lands in the areas mentioned above and by that they respectfully ask the public and unsuspecting buyers to disregard any person or entity that might turn up to have anything to do with them in terms of transaction on those lands apart from Frank Lewis (their client) who has the Power of Attorney to execute deeds on behalf of the family.

In a separate interview with Frank Lewis himself, he indicated that unscrupulous developers within the areas mention above have acquired all kinds of documents with dubious validity and are using that to perpetuate crime on the defenseless family because they are acting in concert with some unscrupulous officials at the Lands Commission.

He said, when you follow up and “do background checks on the documents some of them are holding you will marvel; when you conduct search you will realize that their documents are just ‘noted proposals’ and they can’t go beyond that line because they know they are not doing the right thing and yet will go ahead and build on someone’s property which is criminal”.

Again he lamented that “some others too are also holding their shoulders high and bragging that they have the total support from the Presidency and some top government officials whose names I won’t mention for now for a particular reason.”

“And for those of you who are also going about claiming to have acquired lands from the La Stool too are advised not to be misled because the Lands belongs to the various quarters in La not the stool”, he stressed.

“I therefore use this opportunity to caution all such encroachers to cease all activities on these lands and come to the Nmati Dzrasee family for them to be taken through the proper processes if they so desire”, Frank Lewi opined.
