Minister of Interior and Member of Parliament (MP) for Nandom, Mr. Ambrose Dery, has indicated that vigilante groups who offended the law are being dealt with. He noted that currently they are being tried, “has it ever happened in our history as a Nation, we need to move forward and do more” he said.

As to whether he will disband the vigilante groups in the Country, he stated that “you see you are missing the point; there is a freedom of association as long as an association does not commit an offence”.

“Show me an NPP person who has committed an offence and I have allowed the person to go, I will get that person arrested”.

He further pointed out that six months after election, there is still the fear syndrome among Ghanaians and gave an example to illustrate his point. “When I was growing up we had this funny story that when someone touches you, your genitals disappear and lead to mob action we need to educate ourselves about”.

He praised the media for its crusade against wrongs in our society, “the party that I belong to will prefer an aggressive media over a silent one” he said.
