A Solomon Islands property owner claims he's been told to leave his premises within three months or face losing it

The Solomon Star reports the man as saying that eight people turned up to his property at Henderson telling him to stop further work in the area and to leave immediately.

The owner, who does not want to be named for security reasons, says he acquired the land through the proper channels.

Guadalcanal's Premier Joel Arambola, says the province does not sanction such behaviour.
