National Security Minister, Mr. Kan Dapaah has denied reports suggesting that he insulted a colleague member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong over attacks by the Delta Force.
According to Mr. Kan Dapaah, the stories making rounds are fabricated and are intended at damaging his hard earned reputation.
Mr. Kan Dapaah has been quoted in earlier reports to have asked the Assin Central legislator to “shut up” because he is naïve about matters of national security.
The minister in reaction to this report, says in as much as many may disagree with his approach to dealing with issues of national security, he never uttered any words of insult because his focus has and remains ensuring that the citizenry abides by the rule of law despite their political affiliations.
Some members of pro NPP vigilante group, Delta Force on Thursday stormed a courthouse in the Ashanti Region and set free 13 of their members who were standing trial for heckling and ‘throwing out’ the Ashanti Regional security co-ordinator from his office.
The act has been largely condemned by Ghanaians the world over with many calling for the disbandment of the pro-NPP vigilante group.
Mr. Kan Dapaah as a Minister in charge of the nation’s security has also called for arrest of the culprits.
The situation has led to seeming agitations within the NPP as some defend members of the Delta Forces while others call for the strict application of the rule of law.
