He added that Ewusi misrepresented himself as the IMCIM’s official auctioneer and auctioned equipment seized from illegal miners, but failed to render accounts.

Adum went on to say that Ewusi is an alleged jail breaker from the HMP Ford Prison in the United Kingdom, where he was sentenced for stealing a car from a car hiring company and had it illegally shipped to Ghana.

Per a Peacefmonline.com report, he also revealed that Ewusi was previously known as Horace Brown, but changed his name after breaking jail and slipping into Ghana.

In Adum’s opinion, it is surprising that someone with such a character is occupying sensitive office in the NPP government.
