Col. Festus Aboagye (Rtd) said Saturday that the presser by Information minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, failed the test of comprehensiveness. “The operation [to rescue the Canadian ladies] didn’t start and end with the assault on the house [where the kidnapped ladies were being kept]. However, during a press conference on the rescue operation, the Minister sought to reject the claims government rescued the two Canadians with external assistance. Finally, Col Aboagye (Rtd) also faulted the failure of the government to allow police chiefs present at the presser to speak.
