Kwadwo Bamba at the police headquarters in Kumasi
The police in the Ashanti Regional have grabbed one Kwadwo Bamba, 37, who is believed to have played a role in physically attacking the Ashanti Regional Security Liaison Officer, George Adjei, on Friday.
The police also have the names of men who reportedly took part in that dastardly act, and are working assiduously to arrest them to assist in investigations.
The suspect, who is the organizer of the Delta Force, is currently in custody assisting in investigation.
“It will therefore be in their own interest to turn themselves in, as the command will do everything possible to apprehend them.”
This was contained in a press release, authored and signed by Chief Inspector Godwin Ahianyo, Deputy Ashanti Regional Police PRO.
The police, however, did not state whether Bamba had been officially charged.
A group of stoutly-built men, who claim to be part of Delta Force, said to be a vigilante group for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), last week allegedly stormed the office of Mr. Adjei, at the Regional Coordinating Council, attacked and dragged him along.
They claim Mr. Adjei is an ‘outsider’ (not an Ashanti) and so he could not promote the interest of the Delta Force, who claim to have played crucial roles in helping the NPP to secure victory during the 2016 presidential election.
The paper gathered that the Delta Force is rooting for one Mohammed, who is a leading member of the vigilante group, to be appointed as regional security coordinator so that he can serve its interest.
Chief Inspector Ahianyo deplored the attack on the security coordinator in his office, sternly warning that the police would not tolerate such level of indiscipline.
He stated that any person or group of people who want to cause trouble in the region should quickly abandon the diabolic plan because the police are combat ready to meet them boot-for-boot.
