Former President John Dramani Mahama has taken a swipe against President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over the increasing problem of vigilantes in the political discourse.
Taking to social media to comment on the issue of Delta Force and other incidents of vigilante violence, the former President said the NPP are only reaping what they sowed.
Rememeber the Delta Force? NPP vigilante group known for attacking regional security councils and storming court houses? Well, their members are walking free after their trial ended.
For their acts of assault and vandalism, the 13 members of the group have been fined Ghc 1,800 each, and have been made to sing a bond to be of good behaviour for 1 year.
The minority in Parliament has responded with righteous indignation to the decision of the Attorney General to drop the prosecution of the so-called ‘Delta 8’.
In a statement issued Wednesday and signed by minority leader Haruna Iddrisu, the caucus collectively condemned the action as a ‘travesty of justice’ and signalling a ‘lack of respect’ for the nation’s judiciary.
Seems like a lot of President Akufo-Addo’s committment to the ‘rule of law’ is nothing but lip service, as the Delta Force members who rushed a Kumasi court to aid the escape of their fellow members are walking off scot-free.
Invading a court in the full glare of a judge and police officers seems like an open and shut case, but not according to our Attorney General, Gloria Akuffo.
The honourable member of Parliament for Assin Central, NPP firebrand Kennedy Agyepong, has launched a stinging attack on the CPP’s James Kwabena Bomfeh, claiming he is an incurable drunk who urinates and defecates on himself when drunk.
Kennedy Agyepong was responding to attacks by the outspoken Bomfeh, who’s also known as Kabila, who recently blamed Kennedy Agyepong for the actions of the vigilante group the Delta Force, whilst also calling him a ‘braggart’ for always talking about his wealth in public.
Ghana is a beautiful country. Petty theft can land the perpetrator in jail for years on end, but large scale looting of the public purse usually goes unpunished.
Seems we can add forcibly escaping from custody, whilst in a courtroom, and placing a judge at risk of assault, to the list of things aren’t bad enough to get you imprisoned in Ghana.
NPP firebrand and Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Hon Kennedy Agyepong, has condemned the actions of the NPP vigilante group the Delta Force, who attacked a Kumasi High Court Thursday.
Speaking on UTV, Kennedy Agyepong condemned the actions of the group but also attacked the National Security Advisor, Albert Kan Dapaah, for allowing the situation to get out of hand.
Ghanaians were shocked out of their minds Thursday when news broke that members of the NPP affiliated vigilante group, the Delta Force, had attacked a court and broke out 13 members of theirs standing on trial.
The shocking attack on the most sacred institution of the land was roundly condemned by all well meaning Ghanaians, as it was clearly a development that threatens to erode the democratic credentials of our nation.
The thirteen members of the NPP affiliated vigilante group the Delta Force, who were grabbed out of court Thursday by other members of their recalcitrant group, have turned themselves in to police.
The 13 ‘court break’ members surrendered to the Police and are currently being held in custody, the Ashanti Regional Police Command has announced.
