Some armed personnel claiming to be coming from National Security outfit on Tuesday July, 2014 stormed a house at Kwashieman and mercilessly subjected one John Addo to severe beatings over ownership of armed robber?s house in Accra.
The suppose national security officials further threatened to show Mr. John Addo, ward of Mr. William Addo ?more fire? if he fail to vacate the house at Kwashieman bearing number H/No. B257/2.
The assailants did not stop there but dragged him to the Kwashieman Police Station, saying that they are from ?NATIONAL SECURITY?.
However, undercover checks by the Moment at Kwashieman Police Station confirmed the story as was disclosed that a certain William Addo, popularly known as AKPATSE, a famous Ghanaian screen actor and former President of the Ghana Actors Guild has bailed his ward, John Addo.
Mr. William Addo told this reporter that the house originally belonged to an armed robber who was executed by the PNDC Administration in the early 1980s.
According to him, he suspects strongly that there is an evil conspiracy to grab the house for some private personal gain.
?Is this a story of National Security actually using State power to grab the house of an executed armed robber, or is it the story of some faceless staffers in the office of the President trying to misuse Presidential powers to seize a building for themselves or is it the case of the actual owners of the building using thugs to take the law into their own hands?? a resident in the area quizzed.
As a result of brutalities meted out to Mr. Addo, residents in the area are living in fear and panic.
They added that ?In Ghana when you say ?National Security? it can refer to the Ghana Armed Forces, led by the Chief of Defence Staff; or the National Security offices at the Castle Annex (Blue Gate) led by the National Security Coordinator; or the Bureau of National Investigators led by the Director BNI.
The question is will any of the heads of these three agencies ever send operative with instructions that they should go to H/No. B257/2 Kwashieman and beat up anybody that they see there and dump him at the Kwashieman Police Station?.
