Members of a vigilante group affiliated to the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Delta Force, on Thursday (April 6, 2017) besieged the Kumasi Circuit Court and freed its members who were facing charges for attacking the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator.
Reports suggest that the group nearly assaulted the Judge, Mary Senkyire and also destroyed some court properties.
Thirteen (13) members of the group were detained after the group assaulted the newly appointed Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator, George Adjei.
After hearing the case on Thursday the Judge ruled that they be remanded to appear before the court on April 20, 2017.
However, the other members of the group said they were not going to allow the ruling to stand. They demanded that they the 13 leave the court with them.
This left the judge and other people in court shocked.
But for the timely intervention of the police, the judge would have been brutalised.
The police is yet to make an arrest after the incident although some security personnel were present in court.
