Some 13 members of the Delta Force are standing trial for assault

Delta Force members' case adjourned to May 18
A Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) Circuit Court
on Thursday adjourned a case in which 13 members
of Delta Force, a vigilante group affiliated to
the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) are standing
trial for assault, to May 18, 2017.

The suspects are being prosecuted following their
assault on a certain George Agyei, who had been
appointed as the Ashanti Regional Security

The prosecutor, ACP Okyere Darko, pleaded that
ample time be given them for further

Lawyer for the accused persons, Matthew Appiah,
has argued that his clients are not guilty because
the police have no reason to arrest them.

The presiding Judge Her Honor, Mary Nsenkyire,
granted the request of the prosecutor and
adjourned the case.


Stoutly built members of Delta Force had
previously stormed the Regional Coordinating
Council and forcibly ejected Mr. Agyei because he
is not a native of the Ashanti Region. It took the
timely intervention of the police to save the
situation and restore law and order.

The angry men had earlier destroyed some office
equipment in their bid to drive out Mr Agyei.

Their action was roundly condemned by a large
section of the public who called for their arrest.
Less than 24 hours after the act, the leader of
the group Kwadwo Bamba was arrested by the

Other members were subsequently arrested and
charged for the offence of conspiracy to assault
and assaulting a public officer and causing
unlawful damage.

On the day they were arraigned before court, the
Presiding Judge remanded them into prison custody,
a decision that angered their colleagues who had
stormed the court premises. They eventually got
their colleagues freed.
