Land guards kill one, injure three in attack at Tebu, Ga South


One person was fatally shot and three others were injured following an attack by land guards at a construction site in Tebu, Ga South municipality.

The armed land guards demanded a GH₵4,000 digging fee from the workers, who explained they had already paid another group of land guards the previous Thursday. According to Accra-based Citi News, the land guards opened fire when the workers refused to pay again, resulting in one death and three injuries.

Felix Akunnor, one of the survivors who was wounded in the foot, recounted that the land guards initially confronted them about working on the land without paying the digging fee.

Ebenezer Ahortor, Assemblyman for the Danchera electoral area, explained that land guards have been terrorizing residents for years, despite numerous complaints to authorities. He mentioned that he has repeatedly reported incidents of land guard attacks on developers to the Danchera police station, but no action has been taken due to inadequate resources for crime prevention.
