Private legal practitioner and CEO of Gabs Publications, Publishers of the Daily Statesman Newspaper has asked whether Members of the ruling New Patriotic Parties all ladies group, Loyal Ladies can be classified as vigilantes.
Mr. Otchere-Darko’s question comes in the wake of discussion on alleged vigilante group being trained at the Osu Castle by the NPP.
Joy News’ Manasseh Azure Awuni in a latest investigative report shown on Joy News TV revealed that an NPP affiliated militia group known as De-Eye who are made up of young men and women have been training at the office of the president annex.
The documentary has received backlash mostly from members of the ruling party’s social media group who have described the allegation as frivolous and the video as ‘useless’.
Mr. Otchere-Darko who is noted for speaking his mind when it comes to national issues in a tweet said “I’m reliably informed that there are over 20,000 NPP Loyal Ladies nationwide and growing… Are they also vigilantes?”

But responding to Mr. Otchere-Darko, Chief Operations Officer at the Dalex Finance, Mr. Joe Jackson, said the sarcasm of Mr. Otchere-Darko is unappreciated.
He said that “the issue of so called ‘political vigilantes’ deserves better treatment from those of you in power. It is an existential issue to to our mother Ghana.”
Mr. Joe Jackson said it is an existential issue to to our mother Ghana and need to be addressed.
Gabby Ottchere-Darko, sad that you are scoffing at the issue of vigilantes. Your sarcasm is unappreciated. The issue of so called 'political vigilantes' deserves better treatment from those of you in power. It is an existential issue to to our mother Ghana. pic.twitter.com/iQ9j3q9aAG
