Builsa South Member of Parliament Dr Clement Apaak has told Former Minister of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation Professor Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng to take his personal security seriously following his arrest by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP).

The renowned heart surgeon was put under investigation following an invitation given to him by the Office weeks ago.

He was invited on corruption and corruption-related activities, particularly over his report on the dissolved Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM).

He was also arrested for alleged involvement in the missing of some 500 excavators and the involvement Symphony Limited, the company owned by his son, in illegal mining.

He was immediately granted bail of GH¢2 million.

Commenting on this in a tweet, Dr Apaak said “If this move is a plot to cow or intimidate Prof. Boateng for exposing the involvement of NPP officials, gov’t officials, including some in the Presidency, in illegal mining/galamsey, it has failed on arrival. Prof. must take his personal security into his own hands though!”
