Acting National Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay, has condemned attacks on a Circuit Court in the Ashanti region perpetrated by pro-NPP vigilante group, Delta Force on Thursday
Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen Friday, Mr Blay noted that the NPP will not condone or sanction such actions.
“It’s a pity that these young men will go to that extreme to attack the court. The party condemns in no uncertain terms these distasteful occurrences. It is a pity and foolishness on their part to have acted that way,” he said.
Pro-NPP vigilante group Delta Force on Thursday stormed a Circuit in the Ashanti region and freed some 13 of its members who were standing trial for disturbances at the regional coordinating council.
The 13 Delta Force members are likely to be charged with escape from lawful custody after they turned themselves in last night.
The incident has attracted widespread condemnation in the country.
Many security analysts have faulted the police for not anticipating such a situation considering the delicate nature of the case.
However, Mr Blay has urged the Ghana Police Service to enforce the laws of the land, and bring to book any person, irrespective of their political affiliations, found to be perpetrating acts of violence against any person.
The acting chairman further fumed at persons tagging the NPP as a violent party because of the actions by Delta Force describing it as unfair.
