Samuel Yaw Adusei has parried allegations that he stole five excavators belonging to the state as Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister.

A former Deputy Sports Minister, Joseph Yamin, recently accused Mr Adusei of making away with the equipment after the National Democratic Congress (NDC) exited office in January 2017.

But speaking to Okay FM in Accra, Mr Adusei flatly denied the accusations, adding that, he will drag Yamin to a river god deity popularly known as “Antoa Nyamaa”.

“How do you accuse me of stealing excavators, if Yamin himself did not steal excavators during his tenure as regional minister, how then does he come to accuse me of stealing excavators?

“I am taking him to court and ‘Antoa’ to prove my innocence.

“He will hear from my lawyers even if he refuses (to respond), I will personally take him to Antoa,” he fumed.

A leaked conversation between Mr Yamin and Madam Betty Mould-Iddrisu, Vice Chairperson of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), suggested that the former minister stole the state excavators.

Yamin is also heard accusing Mr Adusei of contributing to the party’s humiliating defeat in the 2016 elections.
