Tongues are wagging among National Security operatives especially within the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) over how, one William Attiku, an aide or a body guard of Mr. Alfred Agbesi Woyome, the NDC?s self-styled financier who was given a booty of GH?52 million judgment debt finds himself in the security hierarchy of the nation.
Mr. Attiku, a claimed US Marine, was seen with the presidential security team in Togo when President John Evans Atta Mills visited the West African country recently to have bilateral discussions with the Togolese president who has also dissolved his father?s RPT party and formed a new one.
He was also seen at the National Prayer and Thanksgiving service held at the Independence Square recently.
His involvement in various functions is causing some kind of apprehension since it is believed among the intelligent officers that the man in question has not only a dodgy character but also a questionable one.
According to our information, the grumbling of the security officers have reached a crescendo and plans are advanced to alert authorities to smoke him out before he damages the reputation of the President.
This paper has gathered that Mr. Attiku who is said to have a questionable and dodgy character parades himself as a security intelligence and works in collaboration with one Ex-W.O Nicholas Gbeku of the National Security.
Furthermore, this paper gathered that during various and important functions, William Attiku who was arrested alongside with Mr. Woyome on that fateful day and was released immediately, most often carries himself as an operative of the National Security.
Scores of security officers calling for his removal from the team revealed how William Attiku was constantly seen at the premises of the National Security Annex with his pal, Nicholas Gbeku.
?Some of us are getting worried and are asking why was this guy allowed to join Presidential security? If the National Security wants to recruit people, they should check the background of the people. This guy has a questionable character and must be checked or removed,? a serious minded officer told this paper.
The agitation among the security operatives reveal that the way and manner Woyome?s boy metamorphosed to a security team of President Mills is a source of worry to them.
Another source at the BNI told this paper that frantic moves are being made to smoke him out because he has a character that is inconsistent with what the security operatives do.
?We are worried and want to know whether he is part of president?s security team?” the source asked.
It is recalled that during the trial of Mr. Woyome, William Attiku is seen at the court?s premises protecting him (Woyome) which has set tongues wagging.
