"We, the Catholic Bishops, hereby condemn in no uncertain terms the incident of raiding the said court and will call on all and sundry to do same," the statement signed by the Most Rev Phillip Naameh, president of the conference read.

According to a report by 3news.com, the institution stated that such actions harm the impressive democratic status Ghana has reached.

They however lauded the Inspector General of Police, David Asante-Apeau and the Minister of Interior, Ambrose Dery for their swift response to the Delta Force incident.

"We equally acknowledge their commitment to deal with any person or group that breaks the law irrespective of their political affiliation and urge them not to relent in their efforts to bring the perpetrators to book. This, we believe, will serve as a deterrent to the public and send a clear signal to such other ‘vigilante groups’ who believe they can act with impunity and vicious disrespect for legitimate authority," they stated.

On Thursday, April 6, a number of the Delta Force members stormed a Kumasi circuit court during the trial of 13 of their members and set them free amidst destroying property and nearly assaulting the judge.

Their act has been widely condemned by many national stakeholders and the public, with many calls for the president to actively get involved in disbanding the group.

Meanwhile the IGP has stated that such acts of lawlessness will not be tolerated, and has assured of more stringent measures to improve security at the various courthouses.
