“We insist that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo must resign as President of the Republic with immediate effect. The president has lost every moral authority to continue to occupy that high office after having been caught in flagrante delicto,” the Deputy Minority Leader, James Klutse Avedzi said.

Describing the president as ‘duplicitous', the minority said, Akufo-Addo had lost every moral authority to continue as president since he has been indicted in the said report.

The minority also called on the Inspector General of the Police, David Asante-Appeatu to immediately carry out a swoop and arrest the leaders of the supposed militia group.

“We call on the Inspector General of Police to immediately, that’s before close of day, carry out a swoop and arrest the leaders and members of De-Eye Group militia. It is obvious that the group has flagrantly violated numerous laws including but not limited to Articles 85, 200 (2) and 210 (2) of the Constitution of Ghana and Police Service Act, 1970 (Act 350).” he added.

A video documentary by a journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni, captured a supposed militia group called “De-Eye” using the former seat of government as a training ground.

De-Eye Group is allegedly training at the Christiansbourg Castle popularly called the Osu Castle in Accra.
