The Kandahar boys, a pro-NPP vigilante group is denying their involvement in an attack on the DVLA’s Northern Regional boss, Frank Gasese, less than a week ago.
The Secretary of the group, Mohammed Umar Farouck in an interview with Diamond News, stated that, “Kandahar Boys played no part in the attack.” He indicated that having met the DVLA’s Regional boss, they wish to disassociate themselves from the attack.
It was reported on Friday, January 29 that the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA), had been stormed by some hoodlums and the regional boss, Frank Gasese was the target of the attackers who were believed to be the Kandahar boys of Tamale.
Following the attack, some Chiefs from the Ziope Traditional area in the Volta Region where the victim of the attack hails from, organized a press conference to condemn the action of the group and called on the government to further investigate and bring the perpetrators to book.
In a reaction, the secretary of the Kandahar group, Mohammed Umar Farouk, in distancing itself from Friday’s insecurity however added that such development to investigate the issue further is welcome and the leadership was ready to parade its members for facial recognitions by the CCTVs at the DVLA premises.
“Is just a fabrication and concocted lies. None of the Kandahar members was involved in such criminal act. The manager of DVLA Mr Gasese knows the group that visited him on Friday, it is not Kandahar members. We met him and even asked him to play the recording of their CCTV for us to clear ourselves, hence we wish to state in clear terms that none of our members took part in the attack on the DVLA manager,” he stated.
