Numo Nmashie Family Gets Justice


The lawful attorney of the Numo Nmashie family in accra Samuel larbi Darko has debunked some media reports that the family currently has ownership of tracts of land in some 29 communities after the Court of appeal ruled in its favour.

According to Mr. Darko, per the ruling of the Court of Appeal, the family now has ownership of tracts of lands covering more than 72 communities in the Greater Accra Region.

Per the ruling, the Numo Nmashie family now has control over lands at Ashiyie, Mempeasem, Ashongman, Ablajei, Sempene, Aboman, Pantang, Abokobi, Akporman, Boi, Kweiman, Otinibi, Ochirenkumfo, AshaleBotwe and Agbogba.

The other villages are Aiyim, Bawaleshie, MadinaMpehuasem, Ogbojo, Otele, Bacthona, Agblesia, Danfa, Adoteiman, Berekuso, Ajitamenti, Aiyimensa and Sesemi.

Some of the other communities captured on the original site plan are Gonteng, Obedibeng, Otanno, Martestsuru, Agyriganor, among others.

According to the lawyer, the court ruling has restored the earlier judgment of the Court of Appeal that approved the site plan which was later affirmed by the Supreme Court in Suit No.J 4/14/2005.

The three-member panel of the Appeal Court unanimously struck out an earlier ruling by Justice Ajet Nassam, a High Court judge who set aside a judgment of both the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court.

The decision of the Court of Appeal makes it clear that the judgment of the Supreme Court in favour of the Numo Nmashie Family in 2006 is the final authority on the ownership of the said parcels of land.

“In conclusion, the appeal is allowed and the judgment of the High Court dated 8th of March, 2011 is hereby set aside,” said the justices in their November 26, 2015 judgment.
