The chaotic scene which emerged today between the two municipal assemblies forced an intervention by the Police and Military to restore calm in the area.

A group of people from Teshie mounted a signboard to demarcate the boundary between the Ledzokuku district assembly and La district assembly. In the course of doing that, the youth from Labadi mobilized to attack them and the youth from Teshie also did the same.

In an interview with Starr FM, assembly Member for the Agblezaa electoral area, Charles Kotey Ashie indicated that the Regional Minister is in a meeting with the two MCEs of Teshie and Labadi respectively to address the tension between the two areas adding there were cases of alleged Military brutalities in the clashes that occurred today  

 ''It's about time we call a spade, a spade because this is not the first time this incident has occurred. It's about time we claim what belongs to us and I quickly organized my members and called on the assembly, went there to mount our signboard and lo and behold people from La came in and Teshie cannot sit down and watch something that belongs to them been taken away . The regional minister called the two MCE's of the areas so currently they are in a meeting and we are waiting for the results''.

''So they started a chaotic scene and the Police and Military came in and the signboard was removed. Three of the Teshie people were injured they were brutalized by the soldiers. The regional minister called the two MCE's of the areas so currently they are in a meeting and we are waiting for the results'',he added.
