Two youth members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Twifo Hemang Lower District Assembly in the Central Region have been remanded into prison custody for stealing and vandalisation.
Reports suggest that some NPP youth in the region have not been on good terms with the Assembly members and Member of Parliament of the area.
It is believed that this is borne out of the youth accusing the Assembly man and the MP of the area, Bright Wereko Brobbey, of going behind their backs to offer jobs to members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The tension between the party youth and their executives reached boiling point, with about 80 members of the group invading an assembly meeting and mercilessly beating up staff in the process.
Two members of the NPP youth group who partook in the lawless act, identified as Kwabena Oteng, 26 and Kwesi Mensah, 28, were subsequently arrested and arraigned before court for prosecution.
The two are also alleged to have broken into the store of the Assembly and made away with some valuable items.
They have therefore been remanded in prison custody by a Twifo Praso Magistrate court and charged with stealing and unlawful entry.
There is still a search by the Police for other members of the group who were involved in the unlawful invasion and beating of Assembly members.
