Some Citizens of Gbarsaw Clan in Central River Cess District are raising concerns about the clearing of more than 600 acres of land that they say is the community’s customary land. The person responsible for the clearing has been a mystery until now. And because none of the required community consultations have happened anger is rising.
Echo Radio reporter Eric Opa Doue has been able to confirm the clearing is being done by National Port Authority Managing Director Bill Twehway.
