Nam1’s Escape And Arrest In Dubai A Sign Of Weak And Loose National Security
We have been very shock to the bone of the arrest of a Ghanaian national and suspect in a scandalous
Gold deal in Ghana one month after an arrest warrant was issued for his arrest in his home country.
The Sunday mid-night news on some news portal about the arrest of Menzgold CEO without formal knowledge of the national security and government calls for a serious alertness, smartness, and greater urgency in the work of our national security outfit to avoid some of these weaknesses in the work of security bureau of Ghana.
This is serious national security bleach, with many implied meaning and consequences, because soon after the arrest warrant was issued many have run conspiracy theories accusing the government of collusion to get the gold deal scam suspect absconded.
It also shows the Ghanaian foreign mission in Dubai is not on top of his job for not getting a hint of the arrest of a Ghanaian national in a country where you are the nation’s representative.
Government as a matter of urgency if possible should fast tract negotiations with the Dubai government to bring the suspect back to Ghana to face the laws on his unlawful or otherwise gold deals that has locked up many citizens gold and cash.
We wish to caution government and national security to be alert in their work to avoid such security and diplomatic lapses, the fact that the suspect left the shores of Ghana at the blind side of authority in itself is an issue of a security concerns.
