Lands Commission warns public of alleged shadow search syndicate

Alhaji Sulemana Mahama, Executive Secretary of the Lands Commission.

The Lands Commission says there is nothing known as “Shadow Search” within its operations.

In a statement, the Commission said its attention has been drawn to a social media circulation about the existence of a syndicate at the Lands Commission that conducts what is termed as “Shadow Search”.

The Statement said the Lands Commission is a state mandated body in the management of Government Lands, conducts official searches for applicants to facilitate their land transactions.

These searches and other services provided by the Commission can be accessed by the general public through the Client Service Access Unit (CSAU) of the Lands Commission or through its online portal

The Commission, therefore, admonishes the public to interact with the Lands Commission exclusively through the Client Service Access Unit or its Online Portal.

The Unit and online portal are the only channels through which all transactions at the Lands Commission are submitted and received. The Commission warns that Clients or Applicants who fail to transact business with the Lands Commission through the prescribed channels do so at their own risk.
