Delta Force Attack: Political Leaders Must Rise Against Vigilante Groups – Ablakwa
The Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu has called on political leaders to rise up against vigilante groups.
Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said these groups backed by some political parties need to be disbanded because they have no legal basis.
He cited Chapter 15, Article 200 of the 1992 Constitution which talks about the police service and other security agencies to back his argument.
Article 200(2) says: “No person or authority shall raise any police except by or under the authority of an Act of Parliament.”
Contributing on Joy FM/MultiTV’s news analysis programme Newsfile Saturday, the legislator said the continuing operation of these groups is “troubling.”
“We no longer can countenance the existence of these groups and no explanation or justification for their operation,” he said.
