Aggrieved chiefs from five Paramouncies within Cape Coast Traditional Area including Kwaprow, Amamoma, Akotokyir, Kakumdo and opinion some leaders as well as other protesters on Wednesday hit on the principal streets of the ancient town, broke eggs and poured libation to invoke 77 deities on the Vice-Chancellor of University of Cape Coast(UCC), Prof Johnson Nyarko Boampong.

The chiefs are accusing the Vice-Chancellor of using the school land for business including the siting of a fuel Station, supermarket and many others without recourse to unresolved issues bothering on the lands in question.

Clad in red and chanting war songs, the protestors wielded placards calling on the government to intervene in the impasse between the community and the University of Cape Coast over land boundaries before it escalates.

Some of the placards read “UCC give us our land, communities lands should be registered at lands commission, we need resettlement or agree on a common boundary” among others.

Briefing the media shortly after a petition was presented to the Central Regional Minister, spokesperson for the aggrieved traditional authorities and the Chief of the Kwaprow community, Nana Kwesi Mensah III, said his colleagues chiefs have written to UCC and other persons in authority proposing a dialogue between the community elders and authorities of the school on how to solve these pending issues amicably but they have been indifferent to their concerns.

“UCC authorities do not respect elders of the communities, we need resettlement or UCC authorities should co-operate to solve land boundary disputes, restrict movement of community members from one community to another, neglecting corporate social responsibilities and among others”, he demanded.
