The Head of the Local Government Service, Nana Ato Arthur, gave an insight of what actually happened in a chat within a recent radio submission on CitiNews.
“They got to the Anointed Palace Chapel at about 11:30 am and as a normal practice, the Head of Works requested for their building permit documents, which they failed to produce. The head of works had previously issued four summons to the church but the leadership of the church never showed up.
He [Head of Works] further instructed the taskforce to write on their portion of the wall, as usual, to produce a permit. Just when they moved to carry on, some youth of the church pounced on them and started beating them with sticks, metal strips, cutlasses and smashing the vehicles of the Engineer, the Municipal Finance Officer and the rest of the taskforce.
We want to send a strong warning to Anointed Palace Chapel and every organization anywhere in Ghana that what happened yesterday is unlawful and we condemn it in no uncertain terms.”
