Former Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Inusah Fuseini has claimed ownership for the audiovisual recording device found in the office of the current Land minister’s office.
An audio visual device believed to have been secretly planted in the office was discovered on Monday which triggered further investigations by the National Security.
But even before the investigations could proceed, Inusah Fuseini told Citi News that he installed the device in 2013 for his personal protection because he took up the fight against illegal mining also known as galamsey in the country.
He also disclosed that the device is not functional because the installation was not completed.
“It is true that I was installing it in 2013 but we never got around to completing the installation and so that is why the national security did the swop in the office they didn’t pick any signal because it’s not working.”
“As a minister, I had started the fight against galamsey…that was an investment in my own security. Kumbour had been shot during the time we came into office and I have been advised by National Security to leave my private residence at Ridge and move into government residence in town. So I was doing that to ensure that I monitor people who were coming into my office in my presence and in my absence.”
When asked why he couldn’t complete the installation, Inusah Fuseini said “somebody was doing it [for me] but I didn’t have time. While doing it he needed me in the office but I didn’t have time so he couldn’t complete it.”
