Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (ADV) – Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo is facing a serious accusation of harboring in militia training camp in the country which could sink his chances for a second mandate, ADV learned from reliable sources.
The accusations are contained in an investigative report published this week by a local reporter Manasseh Azuire Awuni.
In his report, Awuni revealed that President Addo’s ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) was operating a militia training center in a government facility in the capital, Accra.
Local media reports quoting the ’Joy News’ investigative report, revealed that the NPP had been running, the militia training center known as the ‘Eye Vigilante’ for two years now.
The sources said the facility which composes of two offices with one reserved for the ‘commander’ is located in an area marked as a ‘security zone.’
When contacted to comment on the accusation, Ghana’s Interior Ministry officials allegedly told the investigative reporter that there was no such registered private security entity known by the name of Eye Vigilante that existed in the country.
Reports say a private legal practitioner who is contributing to the screening of a documentary titled: ‘Militia in the Heart of the Nation,’ said if verified, the move constituted a clear breach of the law.
Analysts told ADV that such an incident could sink the chances of incumbent President Ado to run for a second mandate against his immediate past predecessor John Mahama who has already made his intentions known for the 2020 presidential poll.
