More than 40 kiosks, some cars and a drinking bar have been burnt to ashes at a slum under the Achimota overhead bridge in Accra.
Residents at the slum located between Eden Securities and Makey Pub woke up to the Tuesday morning and are counting their loses.
Eyewitnesses say the fire started from one of the kiosks belonging to the son of the landlord who sold the land to Makey Pub.
They suspect the fire was deliberate because the new landowner has paid the tenants to move away from his property.
According to them, it is to send a message to them that they have overstayed their deadline but the has denied this.
