The whistleblower appears to be in trouble – Ablakwa on arrest of Frimpong-Boateng

Mr Ablakwa

North Tongu Member of Parliament Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has said that Former Minister of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation Professor Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng appears to be in trouble for blowing the cover on persons allegedly involved in illegal small-scale mining (Galamsey).

Prof Frimpong Boateng was arrested by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP).

The renowned heart surgeon was put under investigation following an invitation given to him by the Office weeks ago.

He was invited on corruption and corruption-related activities, particularly over his report on the dissolved Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM).

He was also arrested for alleged involvement in the missing of some 500 excavators and the involvement Symphony Limited, the company owned by his son, in illegal mining.

He was immediately granted bail of GH¢2 million.


Commenting on this matter, Mr Ablakwa said in a tweet that “From this intercepted document, it seems it is rather the whistleblower, Prof. K. Frimpong Boateng who appears to be in trouble as the OSP investigates his IMCIM for corruption.

“It’s not clear what has happened to the fat cats the Prof indicted in his explosive galamsey report.”
