Speaking on Radio Gold, Lawyer Tamakloe said, "So from beyond the constitutional injunction against invading the privacy of the citizenry; did they (Multimedia) obtain permission from the police service before operating and also did they seek additional permission from the former President before operating the drone?"

Recently, there was much controversy surrounding former President's Mahama refusal to vacate the official vice-presidential residence, claiming it as a retirement package. He later retracted his request and is said to be packing out of the compound.

However, a Joy News report started the conversation on the controversy once more with a drone footage of the house that was meant for Vice-Presidents.

"In the case of the former President, the National Security secretariat must be alerted for breach as he still remains an asset of the country. Also same with the media house like Joy FM, a complaint will be lodged against the same media to the National Media Commission," he said.
