A Church located at Tamakloe Residential at Roman Ridge around Dzowulu Railways is gearing up to petition the Supreme Court over the alleged involvement of Mr. Christian Kpodo, the CEO of the Aveyime Rice Project and Chrispod Hospital in bullying, influencing and twisting their arms to buy a 1-acre land belonging to the church from some unauthorised persons.
The case has been dragging since the year 2019 when the incident first happened.

The church explained that the lower courts have on two occasions unfairly ruled in the favour of Mr. Christian Kpodo in a clear breach of justice and adjudication.
The church is so outraged and distressed by the conduct of Mr. Christian Kpodo, who they accused of using crooked and paid technicalities and gymnastics in court to forcefully take the lands from them.
When contacted, Mr. Christian Kpodo angrily quizzed our Investigators “Do you know who I am? What do those people want again after losing this case on several occasions at the courts? I will sue any media who will tarnish my image.”
According to the church, it is yet to develop the land in question but was in the process of soliciting funds from its partners abroad to commence the building project.
The facts of the case indicated that the church had no intention to sell their 1-acre land which is 4-plots but Mr. Christian Kpodo has managed to influence and bought the land with the connivance of some of the church caretakers.
The church further explained that Mr. Christian Kpodo knew that the people he connived with were not the original owners.
Mr. Christian Kpodo has been accused of illegally acquiring the 1-Acre land in such a prime location within Accra for GHC1 Million which is even way below the value of the land.
This means that for the 4 plots, he bought every 1 plot for GHC25,000.
The church revealed that Mr. Christian Kpodo allegedly doled out GHC50,000 one of the church caretakers who led him to the unauthorised seller to pay the GHC1 Million, he offered at no bargaining price whatsoever.
Mr. Christian Kpodo owns an executive drinking pub with no Car Park which shares neighbour’s wall with the Church.
“He wants to use our land as a Car Park to service customers that patronise his executive drinking pub; but even if that’s what you want to do, why not engage the rightful owners of the land? How can a 1-acre land or 4 plots at such a strategic location in Accra be sold for GHC25,000 per plot?” One of the Leaders of the Church, who prefers to remain anonymous told AMAGHANA ONLINE investigators.
He added that “I can assure Mr. Christian Kpodo that the Supreme Court is our last resort to bring a total closure to the matter; My brother we are going to the Supreme Court to petition them and make our case.”
