Police at Kumbungu in the Northern region have reportedly clashed with some youth of Dalun who are said to have engaged in an “illegal demonstration” after forcibly taking control of the management of revenues accrued from a sea sand winning site.

The youth had selected some individuals as local revenue collectors after accusing officials of the District Assembly of mismanagement.

The leader of the youth Safianu Mahama told Accra-based Kasapa FM that the situation resulted in some misunderstanding between the youth and the district assembly officials.

He said the police who were subsequently called in arrested some three individuals who have been selected as local revenue collectors.

Mr Mahama indicated that another person was picked up by the police on Tuesday which angered the youth of the area.

Many of them subsequently mounted roadblocks, created rumble strips and staged a wild demonstration in protest.

Mr Mahama lamented that authorities of the assembly have reneged on their promise to allocate 60% of the revenue to develop the community.

Police are yet to comment on the incident.

Mr Mahama, however, argued that the youth will not be perturbed, as they will continue to be directly involved in the management of resources in the community.
