The Agape Restoration Ministry Church located in Tema, Community 19, was on Wednesday, 28 November attacked and vandalised by a group of machete-wielding land guards.

The land guards, numbering about 30, stormed the premises of the church around 8:30 am to ransack the whole place on Wednesday.

One of the church members, Selorm Hayford, told ClassFMonline.com that the land guards are claiming the 2-plot property on which the church is situated, for a politician who once contested the Krowor parliamentary seat.

The marauding land guards vandalised all structures on the property as well as cars.

In the violence, the land guards inflicted wounds on the Head pastor Prophet Ebenezer Arthur, as well as his Assistant pastor and three others.

The injured pastor and church members are receiving treatment at the Dampong Hospital on the Spintex Road.

Some of the church members lodged a complaint with the police who stormed the place later on.
