Members of vigilante group affiliated to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Delta Force stormed the Kumasi Circuit Court today [Thursday] and freed the members of their group who were facing charges for causing disturbances at the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council.
A reporter who was in court told Citi News that the group vandalized some court properties and almost assaulted the Judge, Mary Senkyire.
The judged had ruled that they be remanded to appear before court on the 20th of April, 2017.
The 13 were detained in connection with the group’s raiding of Regional Coordinating Council last week on March 24 where they were alleged to have assaulted the newly appointed Security Coordinator, Mr. George Adjei.
After the judges ruling, the members said they were not going to allow the judge’s ruling to stand and demanded that the 13 leave the court with them.
According to the reporter, the judge stood in shock at the Delta Force’s behaviour and was on the verge of being brutalised up by the vigilante group before police intervened and ushered her to her chamber.
No arrest has as yet been made in connection with the court disturbanes.
