Mr. Ato Arthur further stated that it was based on church leadership’s failure to produce the permit for their build that led 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,” he narrated.

He said a formal police complaint was subsequently made to the Sakumono Police Station , leading to the arrest of the five culprits.
