The La Traditional Council has denied allegations that some individuals are attempting to bribe them in relation to land reclamation within the Burma Camp.
The council performed a ceremony to signify the reclamation of the 114 acres of land at the Kpletso site a week ago after years of negotiations with the Ghana Armed Forces(GAF).
A statement from GAF, dated September 26, 2023, said it had not received any directives from the Ministry of Defence to release the Burma Camp land to the council.
The statement acknowledged that there are ongoing discussions by a committee appointed by the Minister of Lands to deliberate and recommend possible solutions to the issue.
Addressing the media on the issue on Thursday, September 27, the La Shikitele, Nii Adjei Koofeh IV said they are committed to the process of reclaiming the land.
“We have initiated discussions with various stakeholders concerning the land reclamation process. I want to assure you that we are committed to reclaiming our lands.
“While there have been allegations of attempts to bribe us regarding the land, I want to clarify that these claims are unfounded. Our intent in recovering the land is not driven by any malicious intentions; rather, it is to safeguard and put it to proper use,” Nii Adjei Koofeh IV.
