He will be taken back on Wednesday and tried, she said.

Militia in the heart of the nation

The undercover work which was aired on Joy News TV on Friday, March 8, detailed how the group known as, De-Eye Group, had been using the former seat of government for training since the Akufo-Addo government was sworn in.

The group is led by Nana Wireko Addo alias ‘Choman’, the former personal bodyguard of President Nana Akufo-Addo and was described in 2012 as a “vigilante group” in a pro-government newspaper Daily Guide.

The government has, however, denied any association with such a group.
