Scam… Minister Accuses Abdul Noah of Land Grabbing
Minister of Lands, Musa Tarawally (photo) Tuesday 5th corroborates act of ‘land grabbing’ by a businessman Abdul Noah.
He made this disclosure while reacting to allegations by Abdul Noah that his land, situated at Lumley Beach Road has been trespassed by the Lands Ministry.
The Minister who annoyingly unveiled falsified land plans bearing the name of the father of Abdul Noah as owner of a state land at the Horticultural Sub Station land at Lumley said his Ministry intends to institute court action against the named businessman.
“Abdul Noah, international businessman and owner of Dad’s Car Center at Lumley, some weeks ago submitted land plans to my ministry, including a composite master plan bearing his name as owner of a state land at Lumley,” Minister Tarawally said.
“Plan 1 explains of a land with acreage of 1.2 situated at Wilkinson Road; plan 2 an acreage of 3.57 situated at the Aberdeen Creek and plan 3 with nameless acreage and location.”
“The composite plan LS 85/81 as submitted by Abdul appears to have been fraudulently prepared, as it identifies one Sembu Kanu of Personage Street as lawful owner thereby questioning the legality of the document.”
Facts have it that the Ministry of Lands lately knocked down a fence erected by Abdul on land found lying and situated at the Horticultural Sub Station at Lumley, allegedly owned by government.
This, our findings reveal, signaled disagreement between the Minister of Lands and Abdul.
The incident afterwards saw Abdul calling a press meeting informing media officials that his land has been hoodwinked by the Ministry of Lands.
Investigations are that a complaint of fraud/land grabbing has been made to the police by officials of the Lands Ministry.
Findings also have it that the land in question, some years ago, was utilized by the Chinese upon agreement between the governments of Sierra Leone and China.
It is a fact that land grabbing, as typically the case, is a household name in Sierra Leone.
All, including top government officials, on a number of occasions, have had endless moments commandeering lands owned and belonging to the state at will.
Even though the police are yet to confirm investigating alleged land fraud against Abdul, plans submitted by the latter seem contradictory and full of deceit.
Abdul insists the Lumley Beach Road land was acquired by his father M. I Noah.
