A fuel station at Mile 7 in Achimota, Accra, said to be the property of the Member of Parliament for Ayawaso East, Nasir Toure was on Monday demolished by the Ga West Municipal assembly.

The Municipal Chief Executive for Ga West, Sam Atukwei Quaye, who led the exercise stated that the fuel station had no permit and was also built in water ways.

The MP is said to be in the process of acquiring a building permit.

The demolition was met with a strong resistance by some well built young men, while a woman also  went naked in  a bid  to obstruct the exercise.

The unfortunate death of over 150 lives at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle following fatal flooding in Accra coupled with a fire outbreak on Wednesday June 3, has sparked the demolishing of several structures in water ways in parts of Accra.

President, John Mahama while announcing a package for the flood victims last week cautioned that unauthorized structures situation in waterways will no longer be countenanced.
