Kan Dapaah responds to leaked VIDEO; claims it is doctored. Hon. Kan Dapaah has responded to a leaked VIDEO and claims it is doctored; he gave detailed information on the video indicating that the original of the sai videos has been retrieved.
Social media commentators are divided on whether the video is credible or not with some calling for the resignation of the Minister of Defence, however, the statement by the honourable minister has eased the tension as efforts are underway to apprehend those behind the act. Hon. Kan Dapaah responds come at a time that the video had trended on all social media platforms especially on twitter.
Being the head of National Security, these issues will be taken care of to ensure the image of the minister, the ministry and government are not negatively impacted by this act by those behind it.
Below is the full statement released in record time by the minister.
“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.
