The much publicized ban placed on the notorious Bo-Kenema Road portion of land in dispute between the Sogbandi landowning family and those of Alhaji S. B. Kallon is not holding as work on the land has continued much to the surprise of most people.
Speaking to Awoko News over the weekend, the angry Principal of Namya Islamic Junior Secondary School, Mohamed Sheik Gbangba, says work has since continued on
the parcel of land next to where the school is situated which he added is owned by a relative of Alhaji S. B. Kallon, a party to the land case in question. He explained how workers were seen fixing zinc sheets on the nearby building in total disregard of the ban imposed by the Resident Magistrate, Henry Sandy.
So far nothing has been done but further report speaks of one party to the case twice failing to show up in court, a situation that has also come under the spotlight.
It must be stated that the ban was placed on the land in question to allow the Magistrate to once and for all handle the matter which has been before the Magistrate Court for quite some time.
Cases involving land are becoming a common place in Bo. Buyers as well as land owning families are to be careful in buying or selling land.
