De-Eye Group Not a Threat To National Security – Bryan

The Minister of State in charge of National Security, Bryan Acheampong, has dismissed allegations leveled against a private security firm, De-Eye Group that they are a threat to national security.

According to him, the group is only made up of unemployed youth seeking job opportunities whose primary focus is solely based on recruitment and employment issues, hence, they do not have the tendency to cause harm.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, he maintained that even though his Ministry was not aware of the group as an appendage of the party, they were aware that Nana Wireko, started his company from his former secretariat at the Castle, where according to him, was warned on countless occasion to vacate the premises which he has done.

“We warned him on two occasions and arrested him, threw him out of the office and shut it down in October on a third encounter with him . . . he does not operate from the Castle any more . . .his new office is now located at Dzorwulu,” he said.

He also revealed that some persons continue to visit the erstwhile seat of government in search of the company though it has relocated.

“We are also aware that due to their extensive marketing efforts on TV, radio, website and their placement success rate, a lot of unsuspecting unemployed continued to visit the Castle in search of De-Eye group.”

“De-eye group does not pose any security threat to the state,” he said.

Activities of De-Eye Group was brought to the attention of the general public through a documentary by Joy FM journalist Manasseh Azure, who captured the alleged militia group meeting and operation from the Christianborg Castle, a place which used to be the seat of government.
