Scores of people sustained several injuries when some irate youth of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Atebubu-Amantin District in the Brong Ahafo Region last Tuesday went on rampage and ended up setting fire to the constituency office of the party.

The youth, who are believed to be supporters of the immediate past District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr Sampson Owusu-Boateng, have argued that the removal of the DCE from office was unfair.

The angry youth subsequently started destroying property in the constituency office and ended up setting it ablaze.

An NDC activist whom the youth believed to be one of the NDC supporters behind Mr Owusu-Boateng’s removal from office, had his house also torched.

The Brong Ahafo Regional Police Command was forced to send in reinforcement from Techiman, Kintampo and Nkoranza to save the situation which had deteriorated in the town.

Meanwhile, police have arrested the man believed to be behind the riots, Addison Ayamba, while a manhunt search has been launched for the former District Chief Executive (DCE) for Atebubu, Sampson Owusu Boateng for allegedly inciting the clashes.

There has been tension between supporters of Mr Owusu-Boateng and those of the sitting Member of Parliament (MP), Mr Sanja Nanja, following  Mr Owusu-Boateng disqualification from contesting the NDC primary in the constituency.

The situation got worse when the President nominated another person for the district assembly to consider as the new DCE.
