The Chiefs and elders of James Town Ngleshie Alata in the Greater Accra region, have dismissed claims by the Gbawe Kwatei family that His Lordship, Justice Anthony Oppong of the High Court Land Division 1 in Accra with Suit No.181/2011, ruled in favour of the Gbawe Kwatei family.
It will be recalled that the Gbawe Kwatei family at a press conference held on November 6, 2019, claimed that the court having heard evidence, entered judgement in favour of the plaintiff (Gbawe Kwatei family) against the 2nd defendant (James Town Ngleshie Alata) on its counterclaim.
In a rebuttal to a press conference addressed by the Dzasetse of Adjumaku, Dawuranpong, Nii Ayi Okudzieman IV, stated that it is a deliberate attempt by the Gbawe Kwatei family and their lead counsel, F.K. Quartey Esq. to mislead the public during their press conference.
He claimed that barely a month ago, the High Court of Accra in Suit No. FAL/181/11 gave judgement in favour of the James Town Ngleshie Alata stool against the Gbawe Kwatei family over lands belonging to the James town stool, of which entry judgement has since been served on the Gbawe Kwatei family.
According to Nii Ayi Okudzieman IV, despite the case going against them, the Gbawe Kwatei family organized a press conference to portray to the public that they had through a recent judgement of the High Court, possessory title of lands in areas like MacCarthy Hills, Weija, Mendskrom, Bortianor and Ngleshie Amanfro among others.
Nii Ayi Okudzieman IV, said in the recent decision by the High Court, the findings of the court were contrary to what the Gbawe Kwatei family were alluding to.
He therefore appealed to the Gbawe Kwatei family to respect the High Court ruling and urged the public to ignore any purported publication from them
