They are Nuhu Suglo, Seidu Salifu, Abdullai Hakeem, Osman Jamal and Bongaamwini are to reappear in court on February 9.

They have been charged with four counts of assault, conspiracy to commit a crime, threat to harm and stealing.

The youth, reported to be members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), besieged the NADMO office in the Upper West region on Wednesday and caused mayhem.

They chased out the Regional Director of NADMO, Isaac Seidu, before brutally assaulting his personal aide.

The Regional Minister, Alhassan Suleiman, reportedly prevented the Police from arresting the perpetrators due to their affiliation with the ruling NPP.

He has been suspended by President Akufo-Addo for his conduct during the whole situation.

This followed a massive strike by workers of NADMO on Thursday, after which they demanded that until the suspects are arrested, they will not return to work.
