According a statement issued by the NSCS and signed by Col Ewk Nibo
(rtd), the trend had so far caused massive encroachment on the airport
environment posing a grave threat to flight operations.
The situation had resulted in serious hazards in the airport
operations, the statement said.
It stated that the notice of the Land Commission in 1998 which aimed
at halting all further developments on the KIA acquisition in order to
promote the airport's land use objectives had been disregarded by
private developers resulting in serious hazards in airport operations.
The statement said to prevent further encroachment, the boundaries of
KIA had been redefined so that non-conforming development and other
unauthorised activities have curtailed.
The NSCS, therefore, announced to the general public that the Kotoka
International Airport land area has been declared a security zone.
"Any interested party who is in doubt as to whether his/ her
development falls within the area may call at the Lands Commission for
clarification before any new further development is undertaken," it
