Black Stars and Deportivo Alaves midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has been in the news for the past few days for pulling out of the Ghanaian team that is to face Japan in a friendly this week. The controversial player withdrew his services alongside Torino midfielder Afriyie Acqquah at the last minute for what is believed to be a bonus row.
Well, it seems Wakaso’s name won’t disappear from the headlines soon, as information gathered by Vibelens indicate that his ‘mansion’ at East Legon, a suburb of Accra, is part of houses earmarked to be demolished in the area.
This is due to a protracted land dispute in that particular area, we gathered.
Wakaso, who has been away from the national team since the second return of head coach Kwesi Appiah is expected to lose his properties alongside other influential neighbors in the vicinity.
Reports say one Mr. Samuel Darko is laying claim to the lands with concrete documents backing his claim, Mr. Samuel Darko chronicled the ownership of the land in the late 70s to date. Mr. Darko cited the era when the land was released for the construction of the Accra Training College in 1974 before its subsequent return due to compensation discrepancies.
