High Court To Rule On Gyataba’s Pickups

A Kumasi High Court has held that it will give its ruling on a suit filed by the Founder and National Chairman of the United Front Party (UFP), Nana Agyenim Boateng aka Gyataba, over the seizure of his two pickups, on April 12, 2017.

This was the second sitting of the court over the suit and the Presiding Judge, Justice Nicholas Mensah Cudjoe Abodakpi, said he did not understand why a person or a group of persons could seize someone’s property, in this case two vehicles, without a court order.

To him, “not even the President of Ghana” could seize vehicles of a Ghanaian national without an order from the law court.

He, however, possibly for the last time, adjourned court proceedings to April 12 this year, adding that he would give his ruling on the case the next sitting.

Gyataba, through his counsel, Mr William Osei Kufour, had prayed the Kumasi High Court Two to dispense justice over what he claimed to be illegal seizure of his two pickups.

He had filed the suit to that effect on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at the law court over the seizure by the Suame Divisional Police Commander, Chief Superintendent,Mr C. O. Lomottey, in conspiracy with four personalities known to be members of a vigilante group known as Invincible Forces.


The court at its sitting on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 had adjourned proceedings to March 30, 2017 after the Presiding Judge was convinced that Mr Osei Kufour would need some time to study the late response to the writ of summons served Mr Lomottey.

It wil be recalled that not long ago, some members of the Invincible Forces stormed Gyataba’s residence at Adankwame in the Atwima Nwabiagya District in the Ashanti Region in the absence of Gyataba and with the help of Mr Lomottey, forcibly towed away the two pickups with registration numbers GM 1842-16 and GM 1413- 16.
