Leadership of pro New Patriotic Party (NPP) vigilante group, Delta Forces has directed its members to stay away from functions of the governing party when their presence is not sought.
The decision, according to the leadership has become necessary following a streak of unsavory events which have been associated with the group ever since President Nana Akufo Addo came into office in January 2017.
Director of Operations, Kwadwo Bamba who spoke with Angel News in an interview said, “we are becoming popular for all the wrong reasons, it is high time we changed our attitude so that our good deeds could also be trumpeted and talked about”.
“We engage in clean up exercises, donate to orphanages and even provide voluntary security in our various neighbourhoods but none of it is captured by the media; so we are advising our members to stay away from party functions when they have not been invited, so they don’t get involved in any acts of violence that could further tarnish our reputation” he said.
A High Court in Kumasi granted bail to three members of the delta force, after they were arrested for invading a meeting organized by the Tafo Pankrono Member of Parliament, Hon. Dr. Anthony Akoto Osei.
One other accused person, Yaw Brefo was however discharged for want of evidence.
The other three have been charged with conspiracy to cause unlawful damage, causing unlawful damage and rioting.
The court, presided over By Justice Lydia Osei Marfo ruled that the accused must comply with the bail conditions which include GHS 20,000 each, with one surety who must be residents in Kumasi.
They have also been asked to submit themselves to the police every Monday.
Kwadwo Bamba also asked Ghanaians not to be scared of the force but see them as agents of development and peace and draw closer to them.
