The discovery provoked questions as to its source and the motives of those who had planted it there.

Several commentators immediately cast blame on unnamed powerful people within the illegal mining (galamsey) community .

But in an interview on Accra-based Starr FM on Tuesday, Inusah Fuseini, who used the office when he was minister, said he had the device fixed there.

Describing the device as his personal property, he said he had it installed to monitor people who entered his office.

He said the device was not functional because its installation was not completed.
