The Gyaasehene of Offuman, Nana Owusu Nkwantabisa Duah, also known as Nana Bossman has been dragged before the Techiman Circuit Court for developing on a piece of land in Offuman, a community in the Techiman North District of the Bono East region without building permits.
According to the Techiman North District Physical Planning Office, calls by the authorities on Nana Bossman to stop developing on the said piece of land and obtain a building permit proved futile as he rather intensified work on the land.
Upon hearing the case on 23rd June 2021, The Techiman Circuit court placed Nana Bossman in Police custody, later granting him bail of Gh₵ 20,000.00 pending ruling on the 8th of July 2021.
Mr John Obeng Mensah further stated that a lot of Ghanaians build without obtaining the right permits to do so which is against the law.
He thus advised the public against such actions to avoid being arrested and prosecuted as in the case of Nana Bossman.
