The Ghana Police Service has said they will prosecute culprits involved in the act through the Attorney General’s Department.
The Director-General in-charge of the Public Affairs Department of the Ghana Police Service, DCOP David Ampah-Bennin, disclosed that some arrests have been made and investigations are underway.

“That’s why we have started an investigation into this vigilante groups. We are inviting them and then they will 
prosecute them,” he said in an interview with Citi News.

DCOP David Ampah-Bennin indicated that justice will be served after investigations.

He added that the Police have also initiated moves to clamp down on illegal security groupings within some political parties in the area.

“It’s unlawful for political party groups, organizations or individuals to encourage the formation of vigilante groups and other associations that assume the character of a security organization. Though we have freedom of association, if your intention is to cause trouble or frustrate other people then it becomes an offence,” he added.

Several political figures were injured and other properties destroyed after some youth from the NPP and NDC attacked each other during a by-election in Talensi on Tuesday.

The violent attacks have been linked to Azoka boys [NDC] and Bolga Bulldogs [NPP], both vigilante groups of the parties.

Meanwhile the Interior Minister, Mark Woyongo has explained that the two groups only acted to defend themselves hence the violence adding that it was a pure case of “violence begets violence.”
