Nii Lante Vanderpuye Lodges Complaint Against Invasion of His Home

The Member of Parliament for the Odododiodio constituency, Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye has said his family will today lodge a formal complaint against persons believed to be National Security Operatives for invading his home over missing government vehicles.

The supposed security operatives allegedly besieged the home of the former Youth and Sports Minister, while he was away in the United Kingdom to inspect his vehicles.

He said it took the intervention of the Police to ward them off his home. While expressing shock over the development, Nii Lante Vandepuye denied being in possession of a state vehicle.

According to him, the only vehicles currently in the house, were ones he purchased from a public auction some four years ago and another; which is an official vehicle he used while serving as minister in the former government, but bought it before he left office. He said he has documents to prove his ownership of the vehicles.

He claimed he will file a complaint with the Police against the unlawful action carried out by the alleged security operatives.

“Under whose instruction are they doing this” he queried adding he contacted the Deputy Minister of Interior, Henry Quartey who followed it up at the National Security and confirmed that the outfit is not aware of the said operations yesterday.

“I’ve asked my wife to get to the Police Station and make a formal complaint with the Police” he said in an interview with Accra-based Citi FM.
