The security details of Western Publications Limited, publishers of DAILY GUIDE, were yesterday stunned by the appearance of a strange vehicle which came close to the main gate of the premises spotting a satellite-like looking gadget mounted on its roof.
Before the security details could pose questions as to the mission of the vehicle at about 10:11am, it had sped off, similarly attracting the attention of passersby as it made for the rear side of the premises, the gate hardly used.
Most workers of the company have never been to that side of the premises. It was therefore amazing how the occupants of the vehicle were able to locate the place with such surgical precision.
The black- coloured vehicle, with government registered number GV 59-15 embossed upon a green regulation background, stood apart from most vehicles in its class and so was attention-catching as it drove off, having completed, as it were, its mission.
Upon the completion of the recce mission, it drove to the front side of Nana Akufo-Addo’s residence towards De Youngsters’ School, similarly attracting the attention of the security details.
Being a newspaper house, the security details are used to receiving several vehicles, the occupants of which come to the company for various shades of business. This vehicle was however different, its mounted gadget reminiscent of the mounted-gun fitted pick-ups used during the Libyan chapter of the Arab Spring.
The mix of the occupants of the vehicle competed with the bizarreness of the mounted gadget: two Chinese men and three Ghanaians, one being the driver. They sat relaxed in the vehicle, unperturbed by the curiosity of the security details. They appeared to be saying they could not be bothered since their mission was on course and could not be stalled by prying eyes.
Long after the Mahindra Scorpio had gone, questions were posed as to the purpose of the reconnoitering mission and what the capabilities of the mounted gadget were. Was it an image-capturing equipment? One thing, however, cut across the questions: Was government spying onDAILY GUIDE; and for what purpose?
