Intelligence picked up by Whatsup News indicates that security capos today met at the National Security Headquarters “Blue Gate” today Thursday, February 25, 2021, to deliberate on an unknown agenda.
But Whatsup News is gathering that the latest security meeting which forms part of series of earlier ones before the 2020 general elections may not be unrelated to suspicions of potential upheavals that may follow the March 4, final judgment of the Supreme Court on the controversial election petition currently ongoing.
Our sources tell us that security capos from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) such as Larry Gbevlo Lartey and Kofi Totobi Kwakye in charge of security operations of the NDC met with National Security Minister-designate, Albert Kan-Dapaah, Interior Minister-designate Ambrose Dery and several others.
Strangely, the meeting reportedly yielded little as the tongue-tied capos only discussed the rising spate of armed robbery in the country and the rising tension from the intense lobby by promoters of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgender, Queers and Intersexual (LGBTQI) agenda in Ghana.
Previously, the same class of security experts had reportedly met several times before the December 2020 general elections and intermittent periods after the election, particularly during reports of secession by some separatists from the Volta Region.
But the intensity of the meetings had reduced in the past several weeks after the elections and thus the one organised today was supposed to be important, but intriguingly the meeting yielded only routine discussions.
Insiders tell of an atmosphere where government security heads appeared to be making certain subtle overtures towards the NDC, perhaps to get them to quell any potential outburst or upheavals anticipated after the Supreme Court final judgment.
Details are currently impossible to verify, given the general closed nature of such security briefings.
The Ghanaians National Security apparatus has generally become a subject of general scorn in the country, following their open partisan bravado during the contentious voters’ registration exercise mid-2020 and the general elections.
Their negligence resulted in some eight (8) civilians being shot dead during the most violent elections in Ghana’s history on December 7, 2020.
Earlier, thugs from the militia arm of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) had been used to infiltrate the National security ranks and had been used to unleash mayhem during the bloody 2018 bye-elections at the Ayawaso West-Wuogon constituency.
