JUDGMENT 

Plaintiff is the owner of a property referred to as “Office Block One” located at its Weija  Monitoring Station. The property fell into disuse when plaintiff moved from analogue  transmission to FM transmission. Taking advantage of the unoccupied property, defendant  operated a school known as “Way of Hope School” on the property without any authorization by  plaintiff. The thrust of plaintiff’s plaint is that she has urgent need of the property to fulfill her  statutory mandate as a public service broadcaster. Consequently, by notice of eviction dated 4th of March 2014, defendant was served with notice to give up vacant possession of plaintiff’s  property by the 30th of August 2014.  

Plaintiff averred that defendant failed to vacate the property and she took steps to re-occupy her  property by barricading the windows and doors at cost of GHc990. But defendant broke the  barricades down and has continued to unlawfully occupy the property thereby depriving her of  same.
