The Ghana army has been sued by one of the most powerful chiefs in the Volta region following what he described as a breach of privacy.
The Agbogbomefia of the Asogli state of the Volta Region, Togbe Afede XIV, says the construction of a 6-storey building near his private residence has destroyed his security lights.
Togbe Afede, who doubles as the president of the house of chiefs, has filed a suit in the human rights court pleading for the structure to be demolished.
“… I am again advised by Counsel and I verily believe same to be true that privacy is a foundation bedrock of right on which other human rights are built, and that if the Respondents are not restrained, the Applicant’s [Togbe Afede’s] rights would be greatly violated,” the suit read.
Meanwhile, government is expected to make an official statement on this development.
