The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has stated that he is in agreement with the Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante Appeatu, with regard to the call to disband vigilante groups.
According to a report by Peacefmonline.com, Agyapong argued that the activities of such groups in recent times have become a source of worry.
“I support the move to denounce vigilante groups 100%. We should all condemn it, let’s disband vigilante groups,” he said in an interview on Neat FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’.
In his opinion, “it's time political parties allowed the police and the military to do their work to ensure peace in the country. They will not be bias.”
The IGP stated that it is against the country’s laws for political parties to have such groups that have recently been disturbing the peace in the country.
