The rebuke comes after multiple media reports say there have been 19 separate incidents of violence caused by New Patriotic Party activists and vigilante groups associated with the party.

In a Facebook post Sunday evening, the ex-president noted that political vigilantism was “spiralling out of control.”

According to him, the “government doesn’t appear to be able to deal with the situation.”

He said it was a “tragedy” that “most of our moral society have become passive spectators.”                                                                                               

Last week, activists of the NPP chased out the District Chief Executive of Karaga in the Northern Region.

And in Sissala in the Upper West Region, a group of irate youth who say they are NPP members stormed the District Assembly to demand the removal of the District Chief Executive (DCE).

Also, on Friday, a group calling itself Party Royals disrupted an assembly election to elect a presiding member in the Adeiso District Assembly.

They also assaulted the assembly members for failing to vote for the party's preferred candidate in the election.
