Five arrested over Delta Force attacks


Five persons have been arrested in connection with the raiding of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council last Friday.

A  pro-New Patriotic Party vigilante group, the Delta Force, stormed the premises of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council last Friday, demanding the removal of the Regional Security Coordinator, George Adjei.

The arrested persons include Kwadwo Fosu Bamba, Awal Sadat Abubakar, Abubakar Sadiq Abdul Hameed, Jamil Issah, and Hamza Mohammed.

The latter three reported themselves to the police, according to a statement from the police. They have been charged with conspiracy to assault, assaulting a public officer and causing unlawful damage.

The angry Delta Force group stormed the premises of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council last Friday, demanding the removal of the Regional Security Coordinator.

They destroyed some properties in a bloody attack, and forced the Security Coordinator out of his office. The Security Coordinator was however saved by the timely intervention of the police.

According to the group, they cannot work with the security coordinator, who they claim contributed nothing to the party’s victory.

The organizer of the Delta Force, Kwadwo Fosu Bamba, subsequently apologized to President Nana Akufo-Addo and members of the party for the assault on George Agyei.

“We are begging the President… we are waiting for anything the President will say. We are ready to obey our President. I feel bad about the whole incident and I wish it will not happen again,” he said in a Citi News interview.
