President Nana Akufo-Addo has described as “disgraceful”, various acts of hooliganism that plagued his first year in office.

Speaking to journalists at the Flagstaff House on Wednesday, 17 January, as part of his second encounter with the media, the president said: “I should not omit from this accounting the disgraceful behaviour of some members of my party, the New Patriotic Party, which has become known as vigilantism.

“I believe there’s no longer any argument that criminal behaviour wears no political colours and it is solely to be dealt with by the police.

“I pray that we’ve seen the last of it. We are continuously working to ensure that it does not recur, that we uphold the rule of law,” the president added.

Most of the vigilante attacks were led by groups like the Delta Force and Invincible Forces.

Some members of the Delta Force were prosecuted.
