Normal duties resume at the NBSSI office in Tamale after a rogue group locked up the premises on Tuesday

Official duties at the National Board for Small Scale Industries (NBSSI) offices in Tamale, has resumed on Wednesday morning, following the takeover by a rogue group a day earlier.

The group said to be called the “Big Six” and believed to be affiliated to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), on Tuesday October 13, attacked and chased out all staff and subsequently locked up the offices.

The group accused officials of the NBSSI of giving loans to members of the opposition National Democratic Congress.

At the time Diamond news visited the premises on Wednesday morning, all offices belonging to the National Board for Small Scale Industries were opened and staffs were busy at work.

Applicants for the COVID-19 recovery fund were also seen at the premises processing their documents to access the funds.

At the time of our visit however, the regional manager of the National Board Small Scale Industries was not available for an interview and all other officials refused to comment on the issue.

The Northern Regional Police command is however yet to effect any arrest a day after the incident.

The Regional Crime officer told Diamond news via phone that the incident was yet to come to his attention.

He was unable to give further details on the incident.
