We don't regret our actions – Delta Force leader

Some members of the Delta Force fined by court[/caption] The leader of the infamous Delta Force, whose members were convicted of conspiracy to commit crime, says the group does not regret the action because it had no intention to commit crime. As a convict himself, Kwadwo Bamba explained that it was for this reason why they went to the scene with the media. Speaking with Akoma FM’s Kwame Baffoe Agyekum from Kumasi on Ghana Dadwene Friday, he said, “we do not regret our actions because we went with the media and if we were going to commit crime, we should not have gone with the media”. Members of the Delta Force in March this year assaulted the president’s newly-appointed Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator, George Agyei whom they said did not contribute to the victory of the party, hence cannot work with him. Thirteen members of the political vigilante group who were arrested for rioting on March 25 were fined ¢1,800 each by the Kumasi Circuit Court on October 19. In default, they are to spend 12 months in jail, the court presided over by Korkor Achiaw Owusu ruled. The initial charges – conspiracy to assault a public officer and causing unlawful damage – was changed on October 10 to conspiracy to commit a crime by rioting to which they pleaded guilty. Kwadwo Bamba said though the law has dealt with them, it will not deter them from fighting for the NPP. “We shall continue fighting for the NPP”, he stated, but said he was sad when the court bond them to be of good behaviour. “I and my people will prove Ghanaians wrong”. He said they will not exhibit good behaiviour for only one year, as required by the court, but will be of good behaviour till death.

Delta Force Violence The Delta Force commander said if there is any party that likes violence, it should be the NDC and not the NPP. He said whenever he hears the NDC say the group is violent he gets angry because it is not. Delta Force quit NPP? Kwadwo Bambo noted that they are in the NPP because of people such as the National Youth Organizer, Sammy Awuku, the Deputy Director of the National Service Secretariat, Henry Nana Boakye and lawyer Kodua. He added that they are in the NPP because of its good policies, helping the people of Ghana, like the free education. Party paid the fine? Asked whether the party or any high profile person in the NPP paid the total fine of GHC23,400, Kwadwo Bamba said they are all workers so they paid the fines themselves. “The party did not pay the money for us. No elder in the NPP paid for us. We paid it ourselves”. He said they did not like the judgment but they accepted it because it was the law. By Kweku Antwi-Otoo|TV3|3news.com|Ghana]]>
