Vigilantism a national crisis; NCCE condemns latest Delta Force attack Featured

By October 14, 2018 13 0

The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), has condemned a recent attack by members of the pro-NPP vigilante group, Delta Force, on the Member of Parliament for Old Tafo, Dr. Anthony Akoto Osei.

According to the Commission, the activities of the group, and other similar vigilante groups in the country pose a serious threat to the country’s peace and security.

Addressing journalists on the matter, the Chairperson of the NCCE, Josephine Nkrumah, called on the government ensure that the culprits are duly punished.

“Political party vigilantes have no space in Ghana’s democratic culture. The NCCE expresses it repulsion at confirmed reports of self-styled leaders of vigilante group Delta Force, associated with the ruling political party, the NPP striking again…. Delta Force hoodlums have become notorious for the use of force and violence in total disregard for law and order,” it said.

2 arrested Delta Force members known NPP members – Sam Pyne

The Ashanti Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sam Pyne, confirmed that the two persons arrested over the botched attack in the Tafo Pankrono Constituency are indeed members of the NPP.

The two are 49-year-old Paul Attah Onyinah, and 51-year-old Richard Yaw, who are both members of the pro-NPP vigilante group, Delta Force, are believed to be part of members who chased out the Member of Parliament for the area, Dr. Anthony Akoto Osei during the meeting.

Sam Pyne disclosed that the two arrested persons are indeed members of the NPP.

“I know the two arrested are party members. Paul Attah Onyinah, is a polling station chairman for the party and the other is a polling station organizer.”
