Kwadwo Bamba, the leader of the Delta Force, a vigilante group within the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has apologised to the President after being granted bail following an attack he led on newly-appointed Regional Security Coordinator, George Agyei, on Friday.

Bamba, 37, an auto mechanic, led some well-built men of the group to remove Mr Agyei from his office on March 24 on the grounds that he was not a native of the region and played no part in the 2016 election campaign, hence merits no appointment in the Akufo-Addo administration.

He was arrested a day later by the Ashanti Regional Police Command.

Speaking in an interview with Chief Jerry Forson, host of Ghana Yensom, on Accra100.5FM after being released on bail on Monday, March 27, Bamba apologised for his actions and those of the group.

“I have been granted bail by the police this morning,” he said.

“Let me use your platform to apologise to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and the Vice President. Let me also apologise to the Ashanti regional chairman of the NPP, Chairman Wontumi, Dr Amoako Tuffuor, Sammi Awuku, and all Ghanaians for what has happened.

“We (Delta Force) were totally wrong, we are sorry for what happened.”
