Real Estate company petitions Ga Mantse over alleged land fraud
Revealedtruth Company, a Ghanaian owned real estate agency has petitioned the the Ga Mantse, Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II to intervene in suspected case land fraud against Captain Nii Kojo Nseni Mankata II.
In a petition signed by its Director, Revealedtruth Company Limited gave a comprehensive breakdown of the transactions with Asafoatse Nii Kojo Nseni Mankata II and how the traditional rule has allegedly failed to fulfil his side of the agreement.
In the petition, the company details that it was contracted by its client, Starlife National Sales Executives to purchase a piece of land in their name. Following discussions and negotiations, the company, says it agreed a deal with Asafoaste Nii Kojo Nseni Mankata over an 8-acre land for a fee GHC320,000.
However, following full payment, the traditional rule has failed to peacefully deliver the said piece of land, leading to its client, Starlife National Sales Executives threatening to drag the company to the Ghana Police Service.
The company, says it decided to seek assistance from the Ga Mantse office due its firm belief that the Ga Mantse can bring finality to the matter and not allow it become a subject of litigation.
Per the content of the petition submitted to the Ga Mantse office, Asafoatse Nii Kojo Mankata and one Alhaji Abubakar Mukaila were the two men who fronted the entire operations but have since 2020 be playing hide-and-seek with the company following and showed no real sign of honoring their promise.
“Revealedtruth Company limited is a real estate company engaged in the facilitation of land sales in Ghana and allied services.
“We were contacted by Starlife National Sales Executives to aid them acquire a piece of land. We consulted with the various custodians of the lands in Accra for available spaces and eventually met with your subject, Asafoatse Captain Nii Kojo Mankata.
“The negotiations on the sale of the land and eventual payment of the purchase price were done in his office located in your Palace. The purchase price forthe 8 acre land was agreed at Ghc 320,000.00 He later furnished us with an indenture supposedly to be executed between Starlife National Sales Executives and Nii Lante Lamptey, the head of the Nii Lante Okunka Family of Danchira-Accra.
“Upon payment of the money, Starlife National Sales Executives tried to take possession of the land only for them to be confronted by one Mack Bennys Company Limited who also laid claim to it. The matter was eventually reported to the Police who came and did a search at the Lands Commission, Accra. The results were different from the representations made to us by Asafoatse Captain Nii Kojo Mankata.
“Ever since the results came out, Asafoatse Captain Nii Kojo Mankata has become evasive; refusing to answer our calls or returning them. Interestingly, he answers phone calls from other numbers but he pretends not to hear us and hangs up as soon as he realizes it is us,.”
“ Starlife National Sales Executives has concluded on reporting the matter to the CID of Ghana Police Service but we have asked them to hold on while we petition your good office to have to resolve this matter.
“We are therefore appealing to you to use your good office to have this matter expeditiously dealt with in the interest of justice.
