Ban Vigilantism in 21 Days – PAFMOG

The abuse of human rights is getting out of hand as Vigilante groups threaten the life of citizens in the country.

The Patriotic Front Movement of Ghana (PAFMOG) has petitioned with the government to ban all Vigilante groups in the country within 21 days, irrespective of their political affiliations.

The General Secretary of the group, Moses Kwasi Donkor together with the president of PAFMOG Ebenezer Nyamekye respectively expressed their displeasure on Homebase TV’s Morning show EBOBOBA,

“We are also confused and disappointed in the midst of several cacophonies in relation to the spate of political vigilante groups creating all sorts of kerfuffle across the length and breadth of our dear Country, Ghana, it is very relevant for one to expatiate on the contemporary security threat called Political vigilantism which has become an endemic aspect of our part of the world”, the group stated in a press release issued in Accra.

Background

Members of Delta Force, a vigilante group associated with the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) caused mayhem Sunday at Tafo Pankrono in the Ashanti Region, when they disrupted a meeting called by their Parliamentarian, Dr. Anthony Osei Akoto.
