Some irate youth numbering about 20, said to be members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Friday attacked the Upper West Akyem District Chief Executive, Eugene Sackey at Adeiso in the Eastern Region.
They accused the DCE of destroying a grader belonging to the Assembly and therefore attempted to beat him.
They were however prevented from doing so.
The angry youth said the DCE has been hobnobbing with members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the area.
The youth, in unison, surged at the DCE at a public function at Adeiso, where he had gone to inaugurate a new complex for the District Assembly, plunging the whole event into chaos, in the process.
The attack happened just when the DCE was about to deliver his speech at the event.
