Rampaging New Patriotic Party (NPP) youth have locked down offices of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIS), Youth Employment Authority (YEA), and the National Disaster Management Authority (NADMO) in Tamale.

The youth, armed with sticks, headed for the offices chanting war songs.

The workers there fled to preserve their lives, according to a report by

The youth said they were taking over the offices because the NPP had won the elections and that the jobs there are been reserved for them.

In Tema, angry NPP youth also stormed the Tema Port to "take over" the place, according to multiple media reports.

When the National Democratic Congress (NDC) won power in 2009, their supporters also locked up several government offices and seized government facilities, including public toilets.
