- The Eastern regional organizer of the NDC, Hackman Kabore, has declared that the party will not disband its vigilante groups
- He added that the NDC wants to see the NPP disband its own groups before it does the same
- According to him, the NDC is ready to train 3000 more people to add up to their groups
The Eastern regional organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Hackman Kabore, has said the party will not disband its vigilante groups until other parties do so.
Starrfm.com.gh reports that Kabore, who founded the vigilante group “Eastern Mambas,” said the NDC must see convincing commitment on the part of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to disband theirs.
According to him, the party has information to the effect that the NPP will pretend to have disbanded its vigilante groups, but will secretly rebrand them as national security operatives to unleash mayhem in 2020 as part of an agenda to hold on to power.
He further stated that the minister of state in charge of national security, Bryan Acheampong, is training a vigilante group at Mpraeso in the Eastern region.
“Per the evidence we have, when you are travelling from Mpraeso to Nkwatia, after Ohene Nana, he (Bryan Acheampong) has built a hotel there.
Provided he has not hidden them because of the public outcry, when you go there, you will meet them with guns in their pockets.
I am telling you some of them are from Bawku, Nima, Maamobi, I know some of them and they know me,” he alleged.
“If a government that has armed forces, police service and other security operatives forms militia groups, do you want us to disband our group?
Let the IGP understand that we will not disband our vigilantes. Even next month, we are going to train about 3000 more,” Kabore added.
He further alleged that the Christian Council and the Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante-Apeatu are simply deceiving Ghanaians.
This, he explained, is because some people are being trained in weapons handling, deployment, VIP management and crowd control management.
The IGP, on Thursday, February 14, 2019, served notice to political parties to disband vigilante groups.
Addressing the media at the police headquarters in Accra, he said that the police will “not tolerate any form of political violence” going forward.
He again revealed that the police administration is in the process of profiling all groups found to be vigilantes within the political setup of Ghana.
