Assignees of Founder and Leader of Anointed Chapel Palace International, Francis Antwi, popularly known as Reverend Obofour, on Monday November 25, 2019 allegedly brutalised officials of the Tema West Municipal Assembly (TWMA) who visited his church in the area to demand for building permit.
According to officials of the TWMA, it was part of their routine activities, which they do in the company of the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) to inspect building permits, but the hostile boys of the man of God beat them to a pulp.
A staff of the Assembly who videoed the incident, said the irate boys used various life-threatening objects on the officials and in the process injured some of them at Shalom Spot in Community 18 where the church is located.
“The Finance Officer, the Chief Executive and engineer were beaten. The phone of the engineer was smashed…the Assembly vehicle the windscreen was smashed. It was a very bad incident to experience. Knives were drawn here, sticks and others. No one was spared the beatings of Obofour’s boys”, the staff narrated in the video.
The matter has since been reported to the police who are said to be investigating the matter though an arrest is yet to be made.
Meanwhile, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Tema West when reached by MyNewsGh.com, declined comment except to say that the matter has officially been lodged with the police who are investigating it.
He is however certain the perpetrators would be brought to book.
