A Kumasi High Court 5 on Thursday (today) has granted bail to eight members of the pro-NPP vigilante group, "Delta Force", who were alleged to have raided a circuit court in Kumasi to free 13 of their members.

Each of them is to execute a bail bond of GHC10,000.00

Furthermore, they are to report to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service every Wednesday.

Background

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 Police.

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

The presiding judge had earlier ruled that the suspects be remanded to appear before court on April 20, 2017.
