Some angry young followers of National Democratic Congress (NDC) strike the Number 2 Mango Street property of Jake Obetsebi Lamptey chairman of NPP at Ridge in Accra on Thursday morning.
It happened as High Court stated to deliver the keys of the bungalow to Mr Obetsebi Jack Lamptey.
Current resident of the bungalow Nii Lantey Vanderpuije will probably give the keys to Public Works Department today, Department will present the key to Jake, but the youth is trying to stop the act.
Chief Baba who directed the youth to the house told that they will struggle to stop any attempt to hand over the bungalow to Jake Lamptey.
The NPP member purchased the property in 2008 after he occupied it for eight years
as minister in the former Kufuor regime. It was purchased according to redevelopment strategy formalized in the 1990s.
In 2008 when the NPP rule was over, the Mills government did not hand over the bungalow to new owner. The bungalow was then declared to Nii Lantey Vanderpuiye who was at the moment an assistant to the late President John Mills.
The two followers of the NDC Omane Boamah and Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, later claimed the issue to the Supreme Court, they accused Jake of dabbling in clash of concern and misuse of office.
The high court ordered in favour of Jake Obetsebi Lamptey. The court then ordered to give the bungalow’s keys to Jack. But the youth of NDC asserted that they will resist any effort to hand over the keys to Obetsebi Lamptey.
Chief Baba said in 2000 jack knew he could not purchase this bungalow but only due to his position he committed so. He also found it interesting how Jake got that, when ET Mensah, who also occupied the bungalow but found it not practicle. When he was retold that the sale of the bungalow was lawful, Baba indicated “legal means indeed.”
