Maverick Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr Kwame Baffoe a.k.a Abronye DC believes actor John Dumelo’s expertise in stealing vehicles belonging to the state and finding ways to conceal its true identities mean he could soon graduate into an armed robber.
He has warned that if the 33-year-old is allowed to go without being charged for his conduct, he may soon train the youth in the country to pick up arms and rob innocent Ghanaians taking into account the fact he is well grounded in stealing.
“We picked the vehicles and asked him to bring the original documents for verification. If it turns out that the vehicle indeed belongs to him, we will hand it over to him as simple as the word. As we speak he is yet to bring those documents to us after we picked the vehicle from the spraying shop”, he stated.
According to him, there is no difference between John Dumelo and an armed robbery recruit indicating that if he could take steps to conceal the true identity of a vehicle which isn’t his, it is impossible he can recruit and train robbery gangs in the country.
He hinted that the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) as well as the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), are building a docket on that and at the appropriate time, he (Dumelo) will be arraigned before court.
“He should be charged for theft because this is a criminal offence” he stressed.
National Security operatives it would be recalled allegedly caught the actor, who was part of the failed campaign to get John Mahama elected for a second time as president, with a vehicle belonging to the state, and retrieved one of them from a spraying shop at Abelemkpe, Accra, recently.
The second V8, ash in colour, which John Dumelo allegedly claimed was in possession of his girlfriend, is currently being pursued by the operatives.
When news broke that one of the two V8 Toyota Land Cruisers classified as missing from the pool of state vehicles had been retrieved from John Dumelo at an auto mechanic’s shop, he allegedly took to Facebook, a social media platform, to rubbish the publication, claiming that he bought the vehicle impounded by the state.
He posted, “I have not granted any interview both private or public to which I mentioned the name of the first lady for buying me a V8,”
He continued, “I bought the vehicle myself; I never said it anywhere that Madam Lordina bought it for me. I have in my entire NDC life met her Excellency only once at a public event. Treat any publication that tries to link my purchase of a V8 to the former first lady as trash.”
