The 13 Delta Force members who escaped from courtroom on Thursday April 6 after chaos ensued in the law court have reported themselves to Police and are currently in police custody.

This was contained in a release by the Ashanti Regional Police command.

Background

Some members of Delta Force, a vigilante group associated with the governing New Patriotic Party, besieged the Kumasi Circuit Court and freed its members who were facing charges for attacking the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator.

Reports suggest that the group nearly assaulted the Judge, Mary Senkyire and also destroyed some court properties.

Thirteen (13) members of the group were detained after the group assaulted the newly appointed Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator, George Adjei.

Reports say only two police officers were on duty at the court at the time, with one of them being pregnant.

However, they managed to get judge Mary Nsenkyire to safety, while Delta Force members vandalised property at the court.
