- Members of the invisible forces have allegedly attacked the UNDP flats at Cantonments in Accra
- Members of the vigilante are alleged to have slapped the contractor at the site ordering him to stop work
Some members of the Invisible forces of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have allegedly placed the UNDP flats at Cantonments under siege.
According to reports by StarrFMonline, these members also abused and maltreated the contractor of the development project who is claimed to have been ordered to stop work.
"When the Contractor of the project approached them to inquire on whose authority they were carrying out the activity, they claimed that they were instructed by a top government official at the Ministry of Works and Housing to carry out their work," Starr FM is quoted as claiming.
In fact, the contractor has also revealed that he was "kicked and slapped" on several occasions by the angry mob. Information reaching YEN.com.gh also indicates that some security operatives are illegally living in the UNDP flats without paying anything to the government.
The apartments are being rented for $500 and $650 but the contractor hints of increasing the price will be increased to $1,500 and $2,000 for the two and three bedrooms respectively after the redevelopment works.
Concerns have been made over the level of impudence of these vigilante groups. In fact, both the opposition NDC and civil society have called on the government to deal with the menace of these vigilante groups.
Meanwhile, president of the republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo has linked the violent acts of pro-NPP vigilante groups Delta Force and Invisible Forces to the high unemployment rate in the country.
According to Nana Addo, plans are far advanced by the government to create the needed jobs for all the unemployed in the country. According to him, all government policies by the government are currently yielding the needed efforts to create jobs and put monies in the pockets of Ghanaians.
