On Friday evening, Officials of the Youth Employment Agency, (YEA) in the Eastern region were blocked by the New Juaben South Constituency executives of the New Patriotic Party from allegedly transporting some bicycles of the agency.
Reportedly led by Mr Mohammed Pelpuo, the regional director, these official were loading ten bicycles from the warehouse of the Authority into a vehicle. A tip off to the NPP executives led them to rush to the scene to confront the situation.
The NPP executives who were apparently unconvinced with the explanation of the situation by the YEA officials then seized the goods and reported the case to the New Juaben Municipal Police command.
The Municipal Police Commander, Superintendent Richardson Kumeko, immediately dispatched police officers led by the Station Master Chief Inspector Ebenezer Sakyi to the regional office of the YEA where the bicycles were being loaded.
The bicycles were then impounded and loaded into a Police Vehicle for safe keeping at the Municipal police command.
Speaking to Starr News, the New Juaben South Constituency Vice Chairman of the NPP, Mr. Asante Benjamin Benash said the party is helping to prevent corrupt activities by officials of the previous administration still occupying key positions after the transition.
According to him, the party supporterswere not being violent but rather being proactive.
