Former president John Dramani Mahama has described the sitting president, Nana Akufo- Addo as the father of militant vigilantism .

Mr Mahama fired the salvoes at his successor during an interview on Radio Gold on Friday.

He added that although the security issues under the erstwhile NDC administration were questionable, Ghanaians feel unsafe under the current President.

According to him, Parties have always had arrangement to provide security for themselves in times of electioneering campaign who were untrained but these people were not armed.

Former president noted that the phenomenon of militant vigilantism is a creation of the Akufo Addo government when he started “All die be die” and all his threatening ways of inciting people to vote for him.

“I think that the structure of what he is trying to do is not right. The two parties alone cannot deal with this issue because the state has become a part of it. The vigilantes they trained have been absorbed into the security services so now they are embedded in the security services. So if you say the party should disband the vigilantes that they have because on our side, some individuals not the party, because of what the NPP is doing have also come up with this hawks thing,” John Mahama explained.
