Let's end vigilantism now- NPP's Delta Force leader

Delta Force organizer, Kwadwo Bamba

NPP Vigilante group, Delta Force has admonished its members and affiliates across the country to refrain from any further acts of violence that bring shame to the party.

The group is the first to have protested a decision made by President Akufo- Addo's administration over the appointment of the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator. The group stormed the premises of the regional coordinating council to drag the appointee George Adjei out of office.

The arrest and detention of 13 of them saw other members raid the court to free their colleagues on trial.

The leader of Delta Force, Kwadwo Fosu Bamba has said that resorting to violence for redress can affect the party's election results in the future. He added the group will henceforth assist police to arrest groups and individuals who fail to heed the President's call for sanity and an end to political vigilantism.

"We regret and feel bad about what we did...so I'll take this opportunity to tell fellow security groups in the NPP that we should give respect to the President. We don't need to take the law into our own hands and behave anyhow", he admonished.

Mr. Fosu Bamba further declared his intentions of contesting for the organizer position in the Oforikrom constituency, adding that, "All party members must respect Ghanaians as a whole. If government appoints someone and you are not happy about it, discuss it first with your Constituency officers, if they delay, move to the regional executives for procedures to be taken."

He warned that if the other groups do not put an end to practicing vigilantism, the Delta Force will arrest them themselves and hand them over to the police.

Meanwhile, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo earlier this week vowed to arrest the rising phenomenon of vigilantism creeping into the socio-political fabric of the Ghanaian society.

He said he would do all that was within his power to ensure that those who flouted the laws of Ghana were made to face its wrath irrespective of their political, ethnic or religious affiliations.
