Prosecution said three days later, the complainant reported the matter to the Police for investigation and on the same day, the Police visited the scene where the fence wall the complainant constructed around the land together with the three hundred pillars valued GHS150, 000.00 were seen demolished.

The Court heard that on April 21, 2022, Abotsi was arrested and in his investigation cautioned statement, he admitted the offence and stated that, the same piece of land belonged to him and that was why they demolished the properties on the land to know the claimant of the land.

Meanwhile, he was told to submit his document on the land to assist investigation but he failed to do so.

The case is under investigation whilst efforts are being made to apprehend the second accused, the Court heard.
