Over 50 shops and houses have been destroyed at Sakaman Blue Lagoon, a suburb of Dansoman in the Greater Accra Region.
Residents say the land owners gave them an evacuation notice which ends in September, 2022.
According to Adom News’ Kwame Anum, the victims have been left stranded.
Many of them could not collect their belongings as they watched helplessly while the bulldozers broke into the structures.
Property worth thousands of cedis are said to have been lost in the rubble.
The affected residents say there were working towards the two-month deadline by which time they would have relocated.
But they were taken by surprise when the unknown men led by a group of uniformed police officers showed up on Friday, July 15.
The affected residents are calling for a refund, citing a rent agreement they have with the chief of the area.
This is not the first of such an incident this week.
On July 12, the Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) led a taskforce to demolish illegal structures sited under some of its high tension lines in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Municipality.
The move, according to GRIDCo, forms part of efforts to reduce the growing human activities around its poles.
