Work has been halted as one of the vigilante groups of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Invincible Forces have besieged the office of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) in Kumasi.
The ‘machomen’ are protesting against the transfer of a Regional Security Coordinator from Greater Accra region to the Ashanti region.
George Agyei took over from Enoch Amoah.
They argued that they prefer one of their members and not a ‘stranger’.
The group have threatened not to disperse the RCC until the new Coordinator George Agyei is booted out of office.
The new Coordinator went to the police station to lodge a compliant after being manhandled by the group.
There is currently heavy security presence at RCC.
Sources within NPP say the Invincible Forces are rooting for one of their leaders Mohammed to be appointed the Regional Security Coordinator hence their actions.
