National Security Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah has filed a lawsuit against convener of the #FixTheCountry movement, Oliver Barker-Vormavor for claiming the minister tried to offer him a $1 million bribe to end his activism.

Barker-Vormavor leveled the allegations after he was arrested alongside others and later released by law enforcement on September 21 for organizing the #OccupyJulorbiHouse demonstration in Accra that according to the police, was in violation of a court injunction prohibiting it.

He told journalists that the National Security Minister and other state officials had invited him back in 2021 to come down to Ghana from the UK to take up an appointment and receive a hefty bribe to the tune of $1 million, all in a ploy to silence the #FixTheCountry movement.

He further threatened to release an audio recording to back his claims of the said meeting. In response, the National Security Ministry dared him to follow through with it. However, that has yet to materialize.

In his legal action, Mr. Kan Dapaah describes the accusations as defamatory and requests them to be retracted with an apology.

He also demands GH¢10 million in general damages including aggravated and/or exemplary damages for defamation resulting from Barker-Vormawor’s words. Additionally, an injunction is requested to prohibit him from making such utterances against him in the future.
