Minister of State in-charge-of National Security, Bryan Acheampong is worried over an inscription on a placard in the ongoing ‘AAGBE W)’ demonstration that has described him as evil.
The demonstrators from opposition politicians who converged at Obra Spot and Kwame Nkrumah Circle are demanding that Bryan Acheampong should be sacked for superintending over violence in the just ended Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
In one of the numerous placards, a gentleman wrote “Bryan is evil’ a tag that has affected the Member of Parliament (MP) Abetifi Constituency in the Eastern Region who could not help but post on his Facebook wall with a comment “This is soooo not fair! Everybody is saying I’m a nice guy except this hooded man..!”
In the aftermath of the by-election, the Minister admitted they the hooded National Security operatives deployed to the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency were his men denying claims they were members of New Patriotic Party (NPP) vigilante group.
He explained that the troops were sanctioned security personnel from his outfit specially deployed for the operation which was characterized by violence.
“We deployed the men. They are with us and some of them had masks. It is not like they came from somewhere and they were just engaged. They were part of the setup that we deployed.
Meanwhile, a group calling itself The Inter-Party Coalition in Defence of National Sovereignty led by Mr. Bernad Mornah is calling for the resignation of Bryan Acheampong as well as the Inspector General of Police, David Asante Apeatu.
