Tension: Scrap Dealers At Agbogbloshie Go On Destruction Spree.

Scrap dealers at Agbogbloshie have gone on rampage destroying properties belonging to the ruling political party. The headquarters of the party bore the brunt of the angry youth who stormed there and were seeing destroying part of the structure. Not only that, they were seen destroying sign boards belonging to the party as well.

The cause of this action is the relocation of people from that part of Agbogbloshie. Onion sellers in the area were the first to be directed to Adjen Kotoku by the regional minister, Hon. Henry Quartey. Despite initial resistance, they agreed to move. The scrap dealers on the other hand probably assumed the directive did not affect them, or even if they knew, resolved to remain resolute.

IIt was earlier on reported that there was an initial resistance from them with gunshots going off. It is believed that the shots came from some of the scrap dealers, which was responded to with warning shots from the security agents.

The rage of the scrap dealers seems not to have been doused by the security personnel considering the destruction of the properties of the ruling government at Agbogbloshie.
