The surge in calls for the disbandment and disarmament of so-called vigilante groups in the country has resulted in accusations and counter accusations between the two major political parties in the country, the governing New Patriotic Party and the largest opposition side, the National Democratic Congress.
Latest to wade into this is the NDC’s Ajumako Enyan Essiam Constituency Executives who accuse the NPP in the constituency of planning to recruit young men to form a new vigilante group. Isaac Kojo Dodoo, the NDC constituency secretary for Ajumako Enyan Essiam at a press briefing on Monday cautioned the NPP against forming such groups.
He said the NDC had gathered intelligence suggesting that the NPP a t Ajummako Enyan Essiam is recruiting well-built men to sow seeds of unrest within the NDC ahead of the 2020 elections.
However, Percy Dennis Quaicoe, the Central Regional organizer of the NPP in reaction described the allegation as unfortunate, unfounded and a dent on the politics currently being practiced in the country.
Mr. Quaicoe said an earlier communique by the NDC alleging that he had been directed by the regional chairman of the party, Mr. Kutin Jnr. To recruit people to form a group sympathetic to the course of the NPP was also also not cming from his outfit.
He warned that acts of divisiveness should be avoided.
