Laud Hammah, younger brother of sacked former Deputy Communications Minister, Victoria Hammah, claims the driver of the beleaguered deputy minister, who is believed to have secretly taped her (Victoria) and leaked it to the media, was promised a trip to the United State of America (USA) by some unknown persons plus other mouth-watering goodies for that undertaking.
According to him, Lawrence Quayeson, who is said to be a cousin of the sacked deputy minister, showed some signs of perfidy during their last interactions with him when the family returned from their hometown in Nkoranza in the Brong Ahafo Region.
“We went to meet part of the family in Nkoranza for a short meeting, and when we returned; the information was on social network (Facebook) so it left us wondering. He also told us he was processing his US visa, we asked him for what because he has no business outside the country.
“…During our investigations, we found out that, he (Lawrence) has been heavily compromised. Some people have promised to finance his trip to the United States of America (USA). There is a lot to this than meets the eye...…they promised him a US trip by the end of this month or next month and a car and some amount of monies. We have evidence to that effect,” he disclosed.
Speaking on Asempa FM, Laud Hammah described the “vickyleaks” saga as “the most fundamental breach of personal security”.
Nonetheless, he noted that, the Hammah family is not surprised at the controversy but rather shocked at the swiftness with which she was fired by the President.
Victoria Hammah was relieved of her as Deputy Communications Minister on Friday by President John Mahama after she was heard loud and very clear on the leaked tape played on NEAT FM, making explicit revelations about the operations done under the cover of darkness by some government officials.
Suspecting the recording was done by her driver, the dismissed deputy minister lodged a complaint with the Mile7 police.
The-34-year-old driver was arrested by a police patrol team on Thursday evening and detained at the Mile 7 Police Station, Achimota in Accra. He was picked up following the official complaint but was released without any specific charge preferred against him after spending nearly 24 hours in cell.
