Asiedu Nketia said Ghana is under threats of being overtaken by terrorist groups if government doesn’t put in the appropriate measures to curb the frequent of acts perpetrated by the groups.
He said the NPP members are being treated as though they are superior to other Ghanaians and hence deserve to be let go even when they put up acts that threaten the peace of the country.
He said Ghana is under threats of being overtaken by terrorist groups if government doesn’t put in the appropriate measures to curb the frequent of acts perpetrated by the groups.
"These attacks have grown in magnitude and they include attacks on security services, we have incidents where military officers have been lynched by mobs, we have instances where these vigilante groups calling themselves variously; Invisible forces, Delta forces, etc. invade police stations, break into cells and release suspects because they claim the NPP members are immune to any form of arrest in other words, they are living above the law because they happen to be members of a party living in power," Asiedu Nketia said.
Speaking to the international community at a Socialist forum in Germany, he said the activities of vigilantism is not different from Boko Haram in Nigeria.
"Comrades, these developments in Ghana are too similar to the antecedents of the Boko Haram incidents in Nigeria. Our Nigerian friends who are here will tell you that Boko Haram started as groups of political vigilantes, trained by politicians for electoral purposes and they grew out of control, we don’t want to see that in Ghana," he added.
The NPP’s Delta Forces, Kandahar Boys, Burma Camp and Invisible Forces have grabbed headlines for boldly attacking state officials and locking up state buildings which has become a major concern.
