|Actor John Dumelo|
Controversial Hiplife artiste Kwame Asare Obeng known in showbiz as A-Plus is questioning the rationale behind Ghanaian actor John Dumelo keeping two state vehicles which he is alleged to have been given to carry out an assignment.
He cited a similar instances where one Elorm Yaa Akwambea an NDC parliamentary candidate received same but after the elections returned the vehicles in her possession .
According to him, the lady in question was given two vehicles but after the campaign period she took the vehicles to the flagstaff house and handed over the keys to the one who gave them to her indicating that she is the type of politician Ghana seeks.
Comparing and contrasting with the issue of renowned actor John Dumelo he said “Now tell me if John Dumelo, who according to information available was not only keeping the cars but attempted to change the colour is not an up and coming thief?
National Security operatives 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.”
