The outspoken former moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana Reverend Prof. Emmanuel Martey has urged President Nana Akufo-Addo to as a matter of urgency put an end to violent activities being perpetuated by some vigilante groups across the country.

According to him, the activities of such groups, particularly those associated with the governing New Patriotic Party are a dent on the country’s democracy.

“The methods of the pro-violent vigilante groups like the Invisible Forces, Delta Force, Bolga Bull dogs, Western Crocodiles and all the rest with their unorthodox modus operandi have doubtlessly been a severe dent on the democratic credentials of our country and the earlier the government puts a halt to this national shame and puts damage control strategies in place, the better for our young democracy; Ghanaians are watching.

“You came in less than three months ago but Ghanaians are watching. Minimise your mistakes, violence is violence no matter who commits it, violence is violence no matter who perpetuates it, and must be condemned in no uncertain terms. Ghana must not be taken years or decades back, we must move rather forward into freedom and justice, progress and development in order to bring into fruition the vision of our political forebearers,” Rev. Martey told a gathering in Kumasi.

It will be recalled that some members of the Delta Force, a group associated with the governing New Patriotic Party, besieged the Kumasi Circuit Court last week and freed its members who were facing charges for attacking the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator.

The 13 escapees have since reported themselves to the police.

Many have also condemned the group for their actions.
