The Government of Ghana has explained why the former bodyguard of President Nana Akufo-Addo, Nana Wireko Addo got access to the premises of the Osu Castle; a former seat of government.

A Joy news investigative piece put together by ace journalist Manasseh Azure, titled “Militia in the heart of the Nation” revealed the training of a group allegedly affiliated to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) at the Osu Castle.

The group called De-Eye allegedly gives training to men and women to provide security and other services according to their website; which according to checks is currently inactive.

Minister of Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah in a statement said Nana Wireko Addo, the founder of the group was initially given access to the Osu Castle as a member of government task-force assigned to retrieve state vehicles and other properties from former government appointees.

According to him, Nana Wireko Addo was “assigned an office there (Osu Castle) to work with a task force to retrieve landed properties and vehicles in the possession of officials of the erstwhile Mahama Administration” however, he later converted his office into “a private business office for the stated purposes of his company (De-Eye group).

The Minister of Information further admitted that "this (using Osu Castle for his private business) should not have been allowed to happen in the first place"
