Shai states families decry illegal land encroachment, urge government intervention

The families of Shai states in the Greater Region have raised concerns over the encroachment and illegal sale of their family stool land in Kodiabe and its surroundings, urging the government and security agencies to intervene.

Comprising three divisions—Hiowe-Doryumu, Lekpeje-Kordiabe, and Hiowe-Agomeda—the Shai states face threats to their ancestral lands. Jaase Tetteh Adabang II, Head of the Saisi Clan in Kordiabe, emphasized the need for intervention from appropriate authorities to restore order and prevent unforeseen conflicts in the community.

Jaase Adabang alleged that individuals from Manya-Dodowa were unlawfully selling lands in the communities, posing a significant threat to the ancestral lands of the Shai states. He cautioned the public against purchasing land from unauthorized sellers, emphasizing that such transactions were risky and could lead to legal disputes.

Highlighting the vast land size of the Terkpehnor Agblezey family, which exceeds 150,000 acres, Jaase Adabang outlined the areas affected by the encroachment, including Jorpanya, Kordiabe, Agomeda, Luom, Bondase, and parts of Doryumu.

The families of Shai states urge swift action from the government and security agencies to address the illegal land encroachment and safeguard their ancestral lands from further exploitation and sale.
