Blay Condemns ‘Foolish’ Action

Freddie Blay

The Acting National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay, has condemned Delta Force, a vigilante group aligned to the ruling party, for invading a Kumasi Circuit Court and freeing members who were standing trial.

According to him, the party is embarrassed by such an action, adding that the law must take its course.

“They are not kids; they’ve taken the step of doing the unthinkable and it is a pity. It has brought embarrassment and it is bad PR for us. But I don’t think that is the end of the world,” he said.

Members of the Delta Force stormed a Kumasi Circuit Court on Thursday and freed 13 of their members, who were standing trial for allegedly harassing the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator, George Adjei.

Speaking on Accra-based Asempa FM yesterday, Mr Freddie Blay explained that the attack by the Delta Force was “foolish.”

He underscored, “Although they have apologized, of course, it doesn’t mean that the party would interfere with police investigation. We had to allow the law to take its own course. In allowing the law to take its own course, it resulted in them being brought before the court. And unfortunately, they were supposed to be remanded. And that was part of the foolish thing that they [Delta Force] did. We condemn it,” he emphasised.
