The landlord of the office being used by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex (LGBTQI) Rights Ghana has given them a one week ultimatum to vacate the property.
The landlord identified as Dr Asenso Gyambibi has agreed to refund the remaining ten months of rent collected for the five-bedroom apartment as he has already issued a cheque to be given to the estate agent to refund to the group.
The landlord further revealed that he was not aware that his property was being used for LGBT activities.
Dr Asenso Gyambibi disclosed that the group has breached the terms of the tenancy agreement after initially agreeing to use the property as residency.
“When I asked for evidence he sent me pictures of an event that was held in this house so I called the agent and I asked him who rented the house because they have been here for just two months,” he told Accra-based Joy FM.
“I asked him if he was aware an event of this nature took place here? He said ‘Oh Doc, nothing really it was just a party and fundraiser event we were having and it is all over social media.”
Meanwhile, the Ghana Police on Wednesday raided the LGBT office in Accra to close it down.
