Head of the Local Government Service has described as barbaric and unacceptable, attacks meted on staff of the Tema West Municipal Assembly Monday, allegedly by the youth of Anointed Palace Chapel.

The Municipal Chief Executive, Adwoa Amoako; Works Engineer and other taskforce members from the Assembly were on the Community 18 premises of the Annointed Palace Church (APC), founded by Pastor Kwaku Agyei Antwi popularly known as Reverend Obofour, to request building permits and other documentation when they were attacked.

Head of the Local Government Service, Nana Ato Arthur, at a media briefing in Tema said the taskforce members were injured while their vehicles and equipment were destroyed.

The church, according to Nana Ato Arthur, had failed multiple times to produce the required documentation to the Assembly and failed to honour several summonses to church authorities.

The Local Government Service has sent a strong warning to churches and religious bodies whose members take delight in assaulting staff to be prepared to meet their wrath.
