Former Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Nana Oye Lithur, has shared her views on the growing incidence of vigilantism and pockets of violence which has a possibility of marring the peace and stability of the country.
She believes president Nana Akufo-Addo, who is the Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, is not doing enough to tackle vigilantism which keeps threatening lives and the democracy of the country.
Speaking on Radio XYZ's Inside Politics, the former minister said she's disappointed that the activities of vigilante groups keep rising and endangering the country although Ghanaians and civil society groups had raised concerns over them.

Criticizing the government, the human rights lawyer, however, called on Ghanaians to "rise up" and kick against the reluctance of the Akufo-Addo government to disband such party militias from the country.
