Ghana lawyers condemn Delta Force mob raid

Lawyers in Ghana have condemned the violent attack on a court in Kumasi by youths believed to be affiliated with the ruling party.

Since the beginning of the year, vigilante groups said to be affiliated to the ruling party have gone on the rampage, seizing state property and attacking public officials.

Ghana’s national security minister Albert Kan-Dapaah says the existence of vigilante groups poses a serious threat to state security and they must be dealt with in accordance with the laws of Ghana.

Eight of the Kumasi court invaders have so far been arrested and all those freed have handed themselves in to the authorities.
