Prophet Nana Akwesi Amponsah, also known as Computer Man, who is a staunch member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has recounted the number of times he reached out to President Akufo-Addo to settle a land dispute between himself and the late Ejisu MP, the late John Kumah.

The founder and head pastor of Hope Generation Ministries International, during an interview on Oman Channel, noted that his land was nearly taken away from him after the late John Kumah and his wife, Lilian Kumah, reportedly sent military officers to cease his land and see to the commencement of construction work.

“I was heading to Kumasi, I was at Konongo then my security personnel called me. He said some 19 soldiers are on your land. They have placed sand and blocks and are building. I asked why, he said John Kumah and his wife have bought the land. My own land that I have had for close to 20 years. Who doesn’t know it is mine.”

He recounted, “I called John Kumah and he said it wasn’t him. We are all in the NPP so this can’t happen.. So I asked the security man to go and check it out. He told me John Kumah’s wife was on the land.”

“I spoke to her and she said okay. I thought that would be it, the following morning, they kept working. I called the Police, Kofi, the president’s nephew and told him he should tell him this is what John Kumah has done to his boy, Kwasi Amponsah.”

According to Computer Man, he reached out to President Akufo-Addo, who then sent a team that found out that John Kumah was behind the initiative.

“The President got in touch with John Kumah and he denied the claims. The president sent some people and they found out that it was John Kumah and he told him that he doesn’t like that.”

He also alleged that the land housing the Disciple of Christ Ministries Worldwide, founded by the late John Kumah’s wife, Apostle Mrs. Lilian Kumah, was acquired illegally.

According to him, the piece of land was forcefully taken from mechanics for the benefit of the deceased MP’s wife. He claimed that over 40 military officers were brought in, allegedly on the orders of the late John Kumah, to intimidate the workers.

“Where John Kumah’s wife’s church is located, it used to be a working space for mechanics. We were one day and all of a sudden, these mechanics were running. Some were injured. Some had been beaten. Over 40 soldiers were brought in.”

“The boys came to inform me so I called John Kumah. But when I called him, he told me he was busy,” he said.

Computer Man noted that he called President Akufo-Addo to have a word with the deceased MP to restore calm.

“So I called Peace FM to intervene otherwise things would escalate I also called the president to speak to John Kumah because even if there are issues with land documentation, you cannot use brute force to intimidate,” he said.

Prior to John Kumah’s death, an elderly woman, believed to be in her late 50s, screaming and labelling the late deputy minister a thief.

She alleged that John Kumah acquired her land under the pretence of a government project, but instead, he is allegedly using it for his private business.

The visibly upset woman passionately demanded the return of her land, expressing her outrage and determination to expose the deputy minister’s actions.

But John Kumah refuted this claim.
