BNI Operative Murdered

....For Uncovering PLot To Kill YA NA Information available to the Lens indicate that the National Security Council of which President Kufuor is the Chairman plotted and executed the death of the BNI operative who exposed the details of the scheme to eliminate the Ya-Na.

The officer named Felix Faarong reported all the minutely gruesome details of the modus operandi used by top figures within the National Security apparatus to carry out their diabolical agenda.

The Lens has learned that soon after the startling exposure in a report to the BNI headquarters on the state of affairs, some officials with the National Security outfit who felt exposed became incensed and began secret moves against the life of Felix Faarong who in their opinion knew too much and was therefore deemed a threat which needed to be eliminated at all cost.

After several attempts to have him killed failed because of Faarong's experience as well the environment in which he lived, steps were taken, when the new BNI director took over, to accelerate the plot by transferring the operative from Yendi to a place as sparsely populated, rural and remote as Laura in the Upper West region.

There they executed the diabolical plan.

The Lens' investigations reveal that a week before his murder, agents were dispatched from Accra to the Upper West Region. As if by design or sheer coincidence, the officer was returning from the funeral of his first wife at Nadowli when he was knocked down from his motorbike by the vehicle in which the agents were; this was done to make his demise appear natural through an accident. When the agents realized that he was still alive, they used a bar to club his forehead whilst he was still lying on the floor. That was the tragic end for Faarong, a conscionable and dedicated Ghanaian whose only crime was doing a thorough job as required of him.

Meanwhile, The Lens can also confirm that BNI once famed as a formidable Intelligence Agency capable of capturing every flatulence at every corner of the country for transmission to Accra is now a mere shadow of its former self. Officers no longer conduct their operational duties with the traditional zeal. Objectivity in their daily operations has become a dangerous adventure attracting severe reprisals from the government.

Operatives are indirectly warned against being objective in matters involving the government, which are likely to embarrass the latter. Operatives in effect pretend not to notice irregularities involving state institutions unless directed to deal with them. This is in order to avoid incurring the displeasure of government.

Chances are great that an operative who breaks faith with the government in this fashion will be suitably remembered-and the Agency has many ways of dealing with such renegades. Notable among the ways to deal with such operatives who are disposed to objectivity is to transfer transfer them to a remote area far away from public view (as in the case of Faarong) and there carry out iniquity upon them silently without public notice.

This new development, coupled with numerous others are compelling many officers to disengage from the Agency, The Lens has learned.
