Arrest members of vigilante groups who cause mayhem – Interior Minister tells police

The Minister for the Interior, Ambrose Dery has urged all Police Commanders within their jurisdictions to arrest all vigilante groups who cause mayhem or face sanctions.

He noted that if these illegal groups continue to operate, it will jeopardize the future of the country.

According to him, the increasing rate of vigilantism, human trafficking, robbery among other crimes must be tackled head on. Mr. Dery gave the directive on the first day of his tour of the Central Region.

He explained that the police needs to exhibit high professional conduct including dealing with the tag of corruption which the public tend to associate the police with.

He also urged the public to support the police with information which will help arrest miscreants in society so every Ghanaian can go about his activities freely.

“We will stop vigilantism…I am giving you the order today that if there is vigilantism in your area and you do not produce the perpetrators, you must be sanctioned and we must get evidence of that…we are not going to go back,” Mr. Dery said.

Mr. Dery added that the president cannot achieve his economic transformation and implement his policies unless Ghanaians feel safe and vigilantism is stopped.
