Ghana court escapees ‘hand themselves in’

The members of a vigilante group who were freed from a court in Kumasi when their fellow vigilantes stormed it on Thursday have turned themselves in to police, reports say.

The men – who belonged to Delta Force, which is linked to the ruling New Patriotic Party – were freed when a 50-strong group besieged the Kumasi Circuit Court and broke into court cells. The mob also destroyed court property, My Starr Online reported.

The raid has shocked many in Ghana, with former justice minister¬†Dominic Ayine saying Delta Force had “done the unthinkable”.

The opposition NDC party of former president John Mahama meanwhile strongly condemned the attack by “government-sponsored goons”.
