The National Security Minister of Ghana, Hon. Albert Kan Dapaah, has finally reacted to the viral video of himself in a romantic video call with a lady.
In a press statement released by the Hon. Minister a while ago, the video is part of a doctored series of conversations that is conducted to trap people who have materials that can compromise high profiled personalities in the country.
The statement further expounds that those involved in the video are part of an investigation and that fact is known to the security hierarchy of the country
He also urged Ghanaians to disregard the video going viral on social media and treat it with the contempt it deserves.
Read full statement below;
“My attention has been drawn to a video circulating on social media purported to be a recorded conversation of myself and a friend.
The said conversation is first of all, part of a broader series of conversations in an effort to uncover persons behind attempts to gather material which could be used to compromise key personalities. Security sector persons routinely employ various methods including baits to uncover cells. This conversation is one such effort.
Secondly, the recording of this conversation and a second telephone conversation of a different subject have been doctored to achieve a false impression of untoward conduct by myself.
Thankfully, an operation related to this matter was successful in retrieving the original and the edited versions of some of the materials. Persons associated with it are subjects of an ongoing investigation known to the relevant security hierarchy.
I assure the Ghanaian public that nothing compromising, untoward or undermining has been occasioned.
Albert Kan Dapaah.”
