Kennedy Agyapong, the member of parliament for Assin Central, has warned Albert Kan Dapaah, the national security minister, not to dare arrest members of the Delta Force, a vigilante group affiliated to the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Delta Force and the Invisible Forces have been accused by some Ghanaians of lawless conduct, such as seizing of public offices and physically attacking public officials.
Delta Force last week attacked the Ashanti Regional security coordinator, Mr George Agyei, and threw him out of his office.
The vigilante group contended that Agyei did not hail from the region and so would not be allowed to hold such a sensitive position.
The development provoked a firestorm of controversy and outrage and prompted many to call for the arrest of the members of the group who undertook the attack.
Commenting on the development on Adom TV, however, Agyapong defended the action of the Delta Force members, saying that they put their lives on the line and defended the NPP when, according to him, the police and the government were against them.
Agyapong said if he was there, he would have clapped for them and urged them to slap Agyie.
"...when I was charged with treason, who came to intervene? It was Ursula who was slapped at Odododiodio…where was Kan-Dapaah? We win power and they all join the bandwagon," he said.
He warned that he would organise a protest against Kan Dapaah and the government if they moved to arrest any member of the group.
“Anyone should dare and put any of the Delta Force guys on trial. I would personally lead demonstrations against the NPP and Kan Dapaah. Nana Addo didn’t win easily; we fought and these boys were at the war front when they were fighting,” he said.
