A statement, authored by Godwin Okumah Nyame, the KMA Public Relations Officer, said Isaac Bediako’s report is laden with falsehood and should therefore be ignored by the public.
According to him, the Delta Force is not playing any role in the relocation processes of the traders and transport unions, operating illegally in the city.
Okumah Nyame stated that the security agencies, led by DSP Kingsley Kwame Kawodie, are leading the relocation of the traders and transport unions.
He wondered why Isaac Bediako concocted blatant lies about the relocation process just to create unnecessary tension and fear in the city.
Okumah Nyame admonished journalists, notably Isaac Bediako, to refrain from peddling lies and rather abide by the ethics of his profession all the time.
