Nii Lantey Vanderpuye, MP for Odododiodio constituency

Member of Parliament for Odododiodio constituency, Nii Lante Vanderpuye says he knows members behind the private security firm, De-Eye Group.

He said many of the men were recruited from his constituency and were used to cause mayhem in his constituency during the 2016 elections.

According to him, about 50 percent of the members
are men who have been recruited from his constituency, Ablekuma South, Ablekuma
Central, Weija-Gbawe and Ashaiman.

“I know those behind De-Eye Group. Fifty percent of them are recruited and close to 100 are from my constituency and so I know what I’m talking about.

“I know what these boys did to us in 2016. How they shot at us; how they destroyed NDC T’shirts, the impunity and how they went around shooting and firing in town. Even one of the guys they shot is dead,” he alleged on Joy News’ AM show Wednesday.

The Minister of State in charge of National Security, Mr Bryan Acheampong,
has meanwhile dismissed suggestions that De-Eye Group is a threat to national security.

He also said his Ministry was not aware of the group as an appendage of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
