Kan Dapaah sues Barker-Vormawor over bribery allegation; demands GH¢10m
Kan Dapaah, the minister of national security, has filed a lawsuit against Oliver Barker-Vormawor, the movement’s organizer.
This came after Mr. Barker-Vormawor allegedly said he was given a tantalizing sum of $1 million and other lucrative posts in 2021 in exchange for quitting his anti-government agitation.
The activist has pledged to release the proof supporting his allegation.
The National Security Minister, however, has called the assertion untrue and an effort to discredit him.
Among other things, Mr. Dapaah requests in his lawsuit that the court rule that Barker-Vormawor’s remarks are defamatory.
He is also demanding the “recovery of the sum of ten million Ghana cedis (GH¢10,000,000.00) as General Damages including Aggravated and/or Exemplary Damages for Defamation for the words uttered by Defendant.”
Additionally, Mr. Dapaah is asking for an apology, retraction, and “a perpetual injunction restraining the Defendant from repeating similar or other defamatory words against the Plaintiff.”
