Speaking to Starr Today’s Naa Dedei Tetteh, the former Deputy Minister rejected claims that he founded the group but instead, he is a member.

“That’s misinformation. I’m not a key member in the formation of the Hawks. [But], I am a member of the Hawks and I associate myself with them,” he stated.

Touching on the disclaimer issued by the NDC dissociating itself from media reports that he claimed the party will never disband its vigilante groups, Mr Yamin said the disclaimer was rushed.

He told Starr News the party should have first listened to the said recordings before taking a decision on him.

“The party in the disclaimer is asking me to come and clarify, which means that from their point it could be true or not true. Tomorrow when I meet the national executives I’m going to put it out there and ask them to show me where in the video I made those comments.

“I should be disappointed in them. If they wanted my side of the story, they would have waited and listened to me first. And that could have influenced the tone of the disclaimer they issued,” he said.
