The Eastern Regional Police Command has arrested a Customs Officer of the Tema Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), Daniel Akro Adjei and his accomplice, John Annan for the unlawful demolition of a public toilet facility in Aburi.

The 12-seater KVIP toilet facility which has been serving the community for about 40 years now is located at Asuafum community, a suburb of Aburi, the Municipal capital of the Akuapem South in the Eastern Region.

The suspect, once a Gospel Artiste, who built a warehouse store close to the toilet facility, without a permit on Wednesday led a hired security task force and a bulldozer to the site and allegedly demolished the only facility that served the majority of residents without toilet facilities in their homes.

The Municipal Chief Executive Officer of the area, Frank Aidoo, who confirmed the incident to DGN Online said he had a report about the incident and rushed there with the Police.

The MCE said the suspect when questioned claimed he purchased the land where the public facility is located two years ago.

Frank Aidoo noted that the said landowner of the area is even standing trial at the court over the said land the suspect claimed he bought, adding that the Assembly hasn’t granted any permit for the sale of the land and also the construction of any building on the land.

He noted his outfit ordered the arrest of the suspects, by the Aburi Police and have been handed over to the Regional police command to assist in an investigation.

Meanwhile, the community prays that justice will be served, and measures will be taken to immediately construct a public toilet to replace the demolished one to curb possible rise in open defecation in the area.
