Several structures on a parcel of land opposite the gold house at Kawukudi in Accra are being pulled down by officials of the Ayawaso East Municipal Assembly.
The move is to make way for commercial construction of an office complex.
Small businesses, wooden settlements and a gas filling station have been affected by the exercise.
Excavators and other earth moving equipment are clearing the structures with occupants looking on helplessly.
Municipal authorities say there has been series of engagements with the occupants on the parcel of land since 2018.
According to them, the exercise was not out of place.
But the victims who spoke to Joy News appealed for support.
According to them, they are now homeless and their properties running into a few cedis have been destroyed.
They also accused the Assembly of selective justice since some affected person were allegedly compensated.
