Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Bosiako has called on the National Security Minister to desist from describing NPP’s vigilante group, ‘Delta Force’ as “criminals”.
He said members of the group are not criminals as purported by Mr. Kan-Dapaah – after describing their recent attack on a Kumasi Circuit court to free their detained members as “Unfortunate”.
The group also attacked the presiding judge, Mrs Mary Nsenkyire who had earlier ruled that the suspects be remanded to reappear before the court on April 20, 2017.
Chairman Wontumi who is alleged to be funding activities of the group says “Even though their activities are uncalled for, they helped the party to win the December 2016 elections.”
“Where was Kan-Dapaah during the elections?” he questioned in an interview with Kumasi based Ash FM.
Bernard Antwi Bosiako however cautioned that – “Kan-Dapaah should know that he is in power because of this same group he is calling criminals. He never campaigned for the party but rather enjoying after the group has suffered for the party. He should be very careful and shut up and behave like an elderly person.”
Meanwhile, the 13 members of the vigilante group who escaped from the Kumasi Circuit court on Thursday have turned themselves over to the Police.
