Executive Director of Irbard Security Consult, Irbard Ibrahim has cautioned that the activities of vigilante groups could tip the country into anarchy.
The security expert was responding to the violent activities of the Delta Force vigilante group in an interview with Kumasi-based Kapital Radio.
Vigilante group believed to be affiliated with the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Delta Force on Friday morning stormed the premises of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council, demanding the removal of the Regional Security Coordinator, Mr. George Adjei. The rowdy group destroyed some properties and forced the Security Coordinator out of his office.
Mr. George Adjei was recently appointed by President Akufo-Addo, but the group has indicated that they cannot work with him because he did not contribute to the party’s electoral success.
The Regional NPP security organizer, Kwadwo Bamba who led the angry group to the premises of the Council said: “we cannot work with him, where was he when we were struggling for the party to come into power?”
They said they want one of their own to be named the Regional Security Coordinator. The timely intervention of personnel from the Ghana Police Service saved Mr. Adjei from further attacks.
