YEN.com.gh has learnt that a constituency chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Amenfi East district could not control his anger against his wife and ended up ridding students of their daily meal.
Nana Asafoankye Adu, reportedly with his "goons" stormed to the Wasa Akropong RIIS Presby Primary School’s pantry to 'destroy' meals meant for the students.
According to a report by GhanaWeb.com, the chairman was infuriated over some marital problems he had with his wife, who happens to be the matron of the school.
The GhanaWeb report continued that Nana Asafoankye Badu had taken his action as revenge on his wife due to their misunderstandings from home.
"While the caterers were cooking, Nana and a group of young men stormed the pantry, attacked them, and poured away all the food that was meant to be served to the entire school which consists over 500 pupils," the report continued.
GhanaWeb reported that bystanders could not intervene as they feared a retribution from the NPP executive, who reportedly had much influence over the local police force of the area.
Nana Asafoankye and his goons also reportedly threw away the cooking pots and utensils used by the kitchen staff of the school.
The actions of the NPP lead reportedly left some 500 pupils of the school hungry as they went without food for the day.
The PTA member said that the school's PTA would hold an emergency meeting on Monday, October, 2 to discuss the issue.
