Structures at Adedenkpo demolished

adendekpoThe Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has demolished more than 70 illegal structures at Adedenkpo in Accra.

The demolition which started at 5 am on Sunday was supervised by personnel from the Ghana Police Service and the Ghana Armed Forces.

This is the second demolition which has been carried out this weekend and it has displaced about a thousand squatters.

Most of the affected persons told Citi News, they were given prior notice but they are now asking for alternative accommodation.

The Metropolitan Chief Executive of Accra, Alfred Oko Vanderpuije in an interview with Citi News said his outfit will not rest on its oars until all structures constructed on water ways and along the Odaw River and Korle Lagoon are demolished.
These demolitions in the capital are being carried out to prevent flooding.

The AMA was given the go ahead following the June 3 floods which left thousands displaced.
