Ghana’s ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) is operating a militia training center in a government facility, a local media network reported on Thursday.

According to a Joy News investigative report, the NPP had been running, the group Eye Vigilante, at a center located in the capital, Accra, for the past two years.

The facility is located in an area marked as a ‘security zone.’ The investigation revealed that the militia had two offices in the building. A general office and one meant for its commander.



When the investigative reporter, Manasseh Azure Awuni, contacted the Interior Ministry about the existence of the group, it was confirmed that no such registered private security entity existed.
