The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has said he will ensure that members of the party’s vigilante groups would be enlisted into the national security of the country.

His comments come on the back of last Friday’s assault on the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator.

Kwadwo Bamba, 37, an auto mechanic is suspected to have led a group of men from the governing New Patriotic Party’s Delta Force on Friday and stormed the office of the recently appointed Ashanti regional security coordinator to stop him from performing his functions.

The group said it cannot work with the regional security coordinator, Mr Adjei since he is not a native of the region.

The suspect, Bamba, who has since been granted bail, has subsequently apologised to the president, Nana Akufo-Addo for his actions.

Many Ghanaians have asked that such vigilante groups be dealt with by the government.

But Mr Agyapong has argued that the NPP’s private security forces are still recognised by the party and hence should be recruited into national security.

“The vigilante groups are recognized in the party and so I will personally make sure they are recruited into national security. If it is work that they need, we will gladly employ them to continue working for Ghana,” he noted.

“Any of the Invincible Forces and Delta Forces who have no work should come to me today, we will give them work,” he said.
