No vigilante group exists in Ashanti Region – Minister

The Ashanti Regional Minister and Chairman of the Regional Security Council, (REGSEC) Simon Osei Mensah says he can state on authority that there’s no vigilante group existing in the region.

His comment follows the attempt by disbanded pro-NPP vigilante group [Delta Force] to forcefully remove the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator from office on Tuesday.

The group led by one Mohammed Seidu was arrested after they invaded the office of DCOP retired Ayensu Opare Addo in the effort to remove him. The gang which claimed to be officials of the National Security stormed the premises of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council for their illegal operation.

However, the regional minister Simon Osei Mensah who had picked intel on the plans of the group made a security arrangement to thwart their actions. They were arrested and are in the custody of the Ashanti Regional Police Command.

The rented vehicle with which they embarked on the operation has been given back to the rental company.

In the first tenure of the Akufo-Addo administration, the group stormed the courtroom and freed their colleagues who were standing trial for causing disturbances at the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council.

Commenting on the development in an interview with host Bonohene Baffuor Awuah on “Ghana Kasa” show on Kasapa FM/Agoo TV, Hon. Simon Osei Mensah stated that he’s yet to receive a full briefing on the incident by the Regional Police Commander.

“When he calls this morning, I’ll get the full details of what transpired, whether there was any destruction of property or not.”

He said as the Head of Security in the Ashanti Region he’s on top of the security situation and he’ll continue to work hard to ensure that the area is peaceful and secure at all times.
