The conflict started when some incensed NPP supporters thronged to a number of public schools in the town, demanding that the caterers employed in the school feeding program stop feeding the pupils, and their contracts cancelled so they (NPP supporters) can take over.

This clash follows a series of takeovers happening across the country by NPP supporters after Nana Akufo-Addo's inauguration last Saturday.
