The general secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, has revealed that members of a vigilante group once saved his life.
In a report by Citinewsroom.com, Boadu stated that even though the party does not support vigilantism, there have been instances in which such groups have provided important services.
Taking his turn before the Emile Short Commission tasked to investigate the incidents that occurred during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election, he recounted an incident with an irate mob.
He revealed that an irate group led by Naaba Abdulai, the brother of former government official, Collins Dauda, accosted him during a monitoring exercise by a pro-NPP vigilante group.
He stated that the group threatened to beat him up and he had no option than to seek protection from the group, as police officials could not help them.
Boadu went ahead to admit that groups such as Kandahar Boys, Bolga Bulldogs, Invincible Forces and Delta Forces are all aligned to the NPP.
He also condemned the violence at the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election. He maintained that the violence recorded at the La Bawaleshie polling station, although very unfortunate, does not discredit the outcome of the by-election in any way, as the briefings from he had the NPP polling agents revealed that the violence escalated away from the voting centre.
