Chief Azorka who is the 1st National Vice Chairman of the National Democratic Congress Chief Azorka says his boys are not a vigilante or militia group as they have been tagged.

The Azorka boys have been identified as one of the political vigilant

e groups that are associated with violence during every election.

This latest development comes on the back of an audio circulating which the National Chairman of the NDC Samuel Ofosu Ampofo is allegedly heard saying that the party deployed the Azorka boys to help protect it members during the Ayawaso by-election.

In a statement released today February 27, 2019, from the office of the 1st National Vice Chairman, they denied the claims that Mr Ampofo has said on radio or TV that the Azorka boys were present during the by-election.

Part of the statement read "I want to by this release disclaim that Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has not said anything of this kind on any radio or television station. And that Azourka Boys were nowhere closer to the AWW election centres where the NPP sent their state-sponsored Militia Groups who were armed to teeth and dressed like they were being deployed to an Ebola infested War Zone".

The statement also disagreed with the assertion that the Azorka boys are a vigilante group.

"In anyways, Azourka Boys are not a militia or a vigilante group who understands no other words than violence and destruction"

There has been a recent nation wide call for the disbandment of vigilante groups and Azorka boys have been earmarked as one of such groups.
