A massive demolition exercise has been undertaken by city authorities on unauthorized structures along the Effia storm drain this afternoon.
The structures which were mainly wooden were crushed, with some others pushed into the storm drain.
Notices in the form of radio announcements, and direct prompts were given by the Sekondi Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly to squatters and occupants of these unauthorized structures last week but it seemed they feel on deaf ears.
The recalcitrant squatters were seen doing business as usual along the unapproved areas.
The exercise lasted for a few minutes. No confrontation was recorded.
However, just when they realized the damage caused to their properties, the recalcitrant squatters started raining insults and curses on the city authorities, particularly the assembly-member for the Effia Electoral Area.
According to some of them, the approach was selective. They say it was a deliberate attempt to settles scores with them.
