The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), is alleging that, some criminals within the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) are behind the recent killing of security officers in line of duty.
According to NDC National Chairman Kofi Portuphy, the NPP for the first time in the political history of the republic, have incorporated militant groups and extremists into its way of operations.
Addressing a press conference in Accra today, Mr Portuphy disclosed that, the NPP’s Invincible and Delta Forces are bunch of outright criminals who have been given official covering from the seat of government to perpetrate crimes.
He also added that, these criminal gangs have been allowed to wage psychological war on the security officials by openly attacking and killing men in uniform.
“Very credible intelligence information available to us [NDC] indicate that, a lot of the armed robbery and killing of hard working police officers is being done by some elements belonging to the NPP militant squads.” The NDC man alleged.
The national chairman also insisted that, per their credible information, these criminals are very confident in perpetrating crimes, since they have full backing of the Akufo-Addo administration of being set free in case of any arrest.
