The Accra Central Police on Tuesday afternoon arrested Bruce Tagoe, a Beneficiary Monitoring Assistant (BMA) recruited by the Youth Employment Agency (YEA) as a temporary staff,following a case of assaultmade against him by the Accra Metro Director of the Agency, Mr. Ephraim Nii Tan Sackey.
According to eye-witnesses, Mr Sackey reported to the Metro Office in compliance with the High Court decision thatinjucts management of the Agency from transferring staff, only to meet three gentlemen by name, Bruce Tagoe, OtiAkenteng and one other person in his office.
Mr. Sackeyintroduced himself as the Metro Director and requested to know who they were since they were sitting in his office.
The Beneficiaries Monitoring Assistant (BMA), according to the eye-witnesses, became furious about the presence of the Director, and started to verbally and physically assault him.
Mr Sackey,left the office to the Accra Central Police station, after being rescued by some staff, to lodge a formal complaint.
It would be recalled that the High court on 7th September 2017 placed an injunction on management of YEA, prohibiting them from transferring some 300 staff of which the victim is part, pending the final determination of a substantive case brought against management by aggrieved staff following mass nationwide transfers effected by management but which the affected officials deem as an effort aimed at frustrating them into resigning from their positions.
Meanwhile, Bruce Tagoe has been identified as the Odododiodoo Constituency Youth Organiser of the governing NPP.
