?.Residents Appeal to Government
By Samuel Ansah Boateng
Residents of Feteh, a suburb of Kasoa in the Central region have appealed to Government and the authorities of the Ghana Armed Forces, to as a matter of urgency come to their aid over recent attacks unleashed unto them by some unknown military officers.
According to Nana Akpakli Ocansey, the legitimate care-taker on Feteh lands, the community had for the past years enjoyed peace and tranquility until last Thursday when about eight (8) unknown armed military officers invaded the community, and attacked residents left, right, and centre.
He said most of the residents who got most injured as a result of the attack at gun point, were some artisans who were working on a piece of land demarcated for the construction of a mosque; which would serve as a holy ground and worshipping centre for Islamic believers in the community.
In an interview with this paper, Nana Ocansey said although there was no particular rivalry between him and any other person, he strongly suspected one Iddi Balobey, the son of the Care-taker of Nyanya-ano , Issah Balobey, since he was the one who led the military officers to the construction site.
He said ?Iddi Balobey, according to my boys who were beaten up, was the one who led the soldiers to the construction site?immediately they landed on the site with their Nissan Alvera Vehicle, he pointed at the boys and ordered the attack ?.I strongly suspect that maybe he had secretly sold some part of the land where the mosque is being constructed, and for fear of loosing , he had resorted to using mayhem to claim what does not rightfully belong to him?.even his father worships with us at the holy grounds?and he is aware ?he is one of the architects to the demarcation of the area for the construction of the mosque, so why would he go ahead and take the law into his own hands?we as residents of Feteh, are law abiding people and we cannot take the law into our own hands.?
In a related development, the Care-Taker of Nyanya-ano, Issah Balobey, was alleged to have also attacked one Mammoud Amannor, the Committee Chairman of Feteh , over the same piece of land where the Mosque was under construction, in which Issah Balobey allegedly bit the back of Mammoud, after they had engaged in a long fiercely fight .
