An attempt by a group of land guards to scare construction workers at Gomoa Fetteh in the Central Region has backfired.

These gun-wielding men besieged the construction site demanding workers there to stop work. In fact, police reports from Gomoa Fetteh show that the land guards opened fire at the workers only for them to be met with similar action by the construction workers.
