Earlier today we reported about some members of Rev. Obofour’s church attacking some gov’t officials.
These thugs who thought they had the freedom to do anything they wanted, attacked some officers of the Tema West Metropolitan Assembly for going to inspect their building permit.
A video of their attack hit the web and a complaint was lodged with the police, leading to five of them being arrested.
The Head of the Local Government Service, Nana Ato Arthur, gave an overview of what actually happened in a chat with CitiNews.
“They got to the Anointed Palace Chapel at about 11:30 am and as a normal practice, the Head of Works requested for their building permit documents, which they failed to produce. The head of works had previously issued four summons to the church but the leadership of the church never showed up,” he said.
“He [Head of Works] further instructed the taskforce to write on their portion of the wall as usual, to produce permit. Just when they moved to carry on, some youth of the church pounced on them and started beating them with sticks, metal strips, cutlasses and smashing the vehicles of the Engineer, the Municipal Finance Officer and the rest of the taskforce.”
According to him, a complaint was made to the Sakumono Police in light of the attack and they have made five arrests.
“We want to send a strong warning to Anointed Palace Chapel an every organization anywhere in Ghana that what happened yesterday is unlawful and we condemn it in no uncertain terms.” Ato Arthur addd.
