Kennedy Kwame Ohene Agyapong, Member of Parliament for Assin Central, has expressed dismay at the bold storming of a Kumasi Circuit Court by New Patriotic Party (NPP) vigilante group, Delta Force freeing 13 of its members standing trial for assaulting newly appointed Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator, George Adjei and removing him from his office on March 24, 2017.
Hon. Agyapong speaking on the ‘Boiling Point’ show on Oman FM, a station he owns despite lending support to the group’s antics sought to distance himself from their most recent action.
“Even if you were sent to court and you were sentenced, there is an appeal to be made on your behalf but to storm the court and free your members has rendered all our interventions useless,” the Assin Domprem native submitted.
According to Hon. Agyapong, he had a call from the NPP’s Ashanti Regional Chairman, Wontumi urging him to be measured when he goes on air informing him about the action of the Delta members adding when K.T. Hammond also called to inform him about the escape he lost appetite immediately.
“Truth be told I don’t tolerate nonsense. No, no, no I say the truth, no one can take the law into their own hands. Even the National Democratic Congress (NDC) with their shenanigans were not as daring. What kind of thinking is this? I am not going to support them again. Even the jobs I secured for them at COCOBOD can be revoked,” an incensed Ken rendered.
He urged them to surrender so legal representation can be sought for them in court adding “I can’t defend this, I was trained at home.”
On Thursday morning when presiding judge Mary Senkyire failed to release the 13 Delta Force members facing trial on bail, about 30 members of the group who had amassed at the court’s promises stormed the Kumasi Circuit Court freeing the 13 standing trial for causing mayhem at the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council.
They used the judges’ chamber as an escape route. A bench warrant was issued for their arrest and blakkpepper.com understands, the 13 turned themselves over to the police after their escape.
They are to be kept in prison custody to appear on April 20, 2017.
