A farmer in Dzodze in the Ketu North District has accused the DCE for the area of intimidation and forcefully taking over a portion of land he inherited from his late father Midawu Sofahu Nutsianyi as the only surviving child.

Dodzi Nutsianyi who took the media to the plot of land described the action of the DCE as insensitive and intimidating considering his current position

He said reported the the issue to one of the chiefs and was given the go-ahead to do whatever he wanted with the land. He said he has on several occasions confronted and pleaded with the DCE to release the land but was only threatened by him.
Dodzi Nutsianyi however warned the DCE to immediately put a stop to all activities on the land and go for a refund from whoever sold the land to him.
Dodzi alleged that his late Dad never sold any land to the nephew of the DCE or the DCE himself and that the man the DCE claimed sold the land to him was the late Uncle which according to him is not the truth .

Mr Avorgbedor noted that the late father of Dodzi sold the land to his nephew before he died and was called by his nephew from Germany to start working on the land
