Mr. Kofi Akpaloo, leader of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), has appealed to government to, as a matter of urgency, ban all vigilante groups in the country to help avert a possible disaster. Several other people have also made similar calls to government.
As will be recalled, COP Kofi Boakye, one of the most respected police officers in the country, recently charged government to ban vigilante groups in the country, stressing that the existence of such groups has the potential of turning the country into civil war, especially during the 2020 polls.
Adding his voice to the calls, Mr. Akpaloo posited that the spate of violence being caused by vigilante groups should be of concern to all.
“They are causing a lot of problems for us, especially the security personnel. Therefore I am saying that the vigilante groups should be banned”.
Akpaloo, who was speaking on radio, said Ghana can only develop when there is total peace in the country.
According to him, President Nana Akufo-Addo is a listening leader so he hoped he would consider his passionate appeal.
