According to a Class FM report, the group marched to the member of parliament for Odododiodio's residence around the Weija area, demanding to search the premises.

Mr Vanderpuye's wife who was at home at the time refused entry to group, on the basis of no warrant to conduct a search.

This caused the group to split in two, with one half remaining near the residence while the other headed out to acquire a warrant.

Mr Vanderpuye who is currently out of the country spoke to Class FM News, stating, "No youth have attacked me but the people who say they are from BNI and National Security and Confiscated Car Committee were in my house, they said they were coming to pick government vehicles from my house.

I am not in Ghana so they are harassing my wife and children. For now they have not have access to my house, my wife said she will not open for them to enter because they have no warrant. My children are from school coming to the house but she can’t open the gates for the children to enter because if she opens the gate the people will enter the house."
