The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has insisted that the leader of the gang that kidnapped two Canadian ladies is a leading member of pro-NPP Vigilante Group, Delta Forces.
According to the NDC scribe, Seidu Mba who is currently in the custody of the police is also known to be a notorious criminal who takes advantage of his links with the NPP to brutalise people.
“This Seidu Mba, is a known and leading member of the Delta Force in Kumasi…he has been leading several revolts including attacks on police station…,” he alleged in an interview with Accra-based Kasapa FM monitored by Atinkaonline.com.
Kumasi-based vigilante group Delta Force has denied claims that one of the suspects in the kidnapping of the two Canadian girls is a member of the group.
Social media has been awash, since the rescue operation Wednesday, with suggestions that Ghanaian suspect Seidu Mba is a known member of the governing party-affiliated group.
In a statement, Delta force said: “It has come to the knowledge of the Delta Force Group that one bodybuilder in Kumasi, known in the airwaves as Seidu has been arrested by the Ashanti Regional police command in connection with the two Canadian girls kidnapped case, and he is being purported to be a member of our group.
“The Delta Force Group in the Ashanti Region would like to state unequivocally that the said culprit (Seidu), has never been a member of our group and he’s not part of us”.
At least eight persons were arrested in an operation to rescue the two kidnapped Canadian nationals in a suburb of Kumasi.
But Asiedu Nketia insists Mba is a leading member of the NPP.
He claimed Seidu Mba once fought with former President John Mahama insisting that he will not allow him use the VIP section of the Kumasi Airport since he is no longer Presdient.
