Members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) vigilante group, Delta Forces say they have no regrets attacking the new Regional Security Coordinator in the Ashanti Region, George Agyei.
Vice Chairman of the group, one Akwasi speaking on Adom FM’s Morning Show “Dwaso Nsem” Monday said they will continue tormenting the Security Coordinator till President Akufo-Addo replaces him.
“We don’t know Mr George Agyei and he didn’t contribute to the victory of the party and so we don’t need him. In fact, we don’t regret attacking him at all and we will continue to storm the place and torment him till he is changed,” he said.
Last Friday [March 23rd, 2017], the vigilante group, Delta Force stormed the premises of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council, demanding the removal of Mr. George Agyei.
The group destroyed state properties and manhandled the appointee.
According to the group, they cannot work with Mr. Agyei who was recently appointed by President Akufo-Addo.
They said he did not contribute to the party’s electoral success in the 2016.
Akwasi maintained that they stormed the RCC because the leaders of the party in the run up to the 2016 elections promised to give the position of Regional security coordinator to someone who can finance their activities for the party.
“Our leaders promised to bring someone who understands us and that person is Mohammed Seidu. He supported us when we were all fighting for the victory of the party in the 2016 General Elections and so we were shocked to hear that one Mr Agyei has been appointed and approved. We don’t need him,” he stressed.
Meanwhile, one person who was arrested by the Ashanti Regional police command following the raid at the Regional Coordinating Council has been granted bail.
The suspect, Kwadwo Bamba, a 37-year-old man and the organizer of the group is believed to have played a key role in Friday’s violence.
