Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram Sam George has added his voice to calls for the disbandment of militias in the country by calling on the appropriate institutions to fix land tenure system. He believes members of these groups are land guards hence when the land tenure system is fixed and the police service allowed to work by clamping them down on these land-guards, they will be left no choice than to leave the system.
The Mp made the call when he appeared before the Emile Short Commission of inquiry for the second time.
There is growing public concern over political vigilantism in the country with some high profile incidents linked to groups affiliated with both the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition NDC. There is also media report circulating that Sam George saying that Asoka boys and Hawks are vigilante groups when the Police has attributed the shooting incident NDC party headquarters to some members of the Hawks.
