The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, believes that there is truth in the recent Joy News' investigation that concluded that a militia group sympathetic to the ruling government was operating at the Osu Castle.
As reported by Pulse.com..gh, the MP made his sentiments known in a radio interview on UK-based Sources FM on Friday, March 8, 2019.
Agyapong said he heard about the operations of De-Eye group when a gentleman approached him for GHC 2000 to be recruited into the security services by the group.
He said his checks revealed that it was a fraudulent attempt on him (Agyapong) and that it was one former pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP) bodyguard who was training people at the Castle.
"Is there an element of truth or not? There is an element of truth about the operations of the [De-Eye] group at the (Osu) Castle", Agyapong said.
Agyapong then asked: "Are you saying that when the boy (pro-NPP bodyguard) was training them daily, no one in authority didn't see them?"
He added that it was later explained to him at the Kotoka International Airport that the promoter of the group, Nana Wireko Addo, made available to security companies, the services of the people he trained at the Castle.
In government's response, the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, said on Frida, March 8 that Wireko Addo was initially given access to the Osu Castle as a member of government task-force assigned to retrieve state vehicles from former government officials.
