Gov't returns Agyenim Boateng's vehicle


By: Raphael Apetorgbor

National Security Operatives have released a vehicle they earlier seized from Mr. James Agyenim Boateng, a former aide to former Vice President Paa Kwasi Amissah-Arthur.

The vehicle was seized in February this year after the security operatives visited his home ostensibly to conduct a search for missing cars which they suspected was in his custody.

According to him, the soldiers claimed they were acting on the instructions of Chief of Staff, Madam Frema Osei Opare as part of President Akufo Addo’s government efforts to retrieve missing state vehicles in possession of past government officials.

However, Mr. Agyenim Boateng, in a facebook post on Wednesday disclosed that national security operatives had returned the vehicle after satisfying themselves that it was not a stolen asset as previously suspected.

He said, “Government-sponsored ‘thugs’, who go about seizing vehicles unlawfully, got eggs on their faces again today and embarrassed their bosses one more time’

“After investigations (and the police were very professional), the police handed over my vehicle back to me, noting that their investigations established that the said vehicle did NOT belong to the State.

“This is not the first time that the government and its car-snatching gang are suffering an embarrassment. They were disgraced in the case of Mr Kofi Adams, Fame Derek Djisam and another one involving a Member of Parliament, among others,” the former Deputy Minister of Information in the erstwhile President John Mills administration wrote.

He said despite the so-called missing state vehicles saga and the unlawful seizure of privately-owned vehicles by the "thugs", the government has yet to show one example where they seized a car and it, indeed, belonged to the State.
