NDC Spokesperson on Entertainment, Rex Omar has hit out at the Party’s parliamentary candidate for Ayawaso West Wuogon, John Dumelo over his attempt to ‘steal’ a state-owned Land Cruiser V8 vehicle.
The Highlife Artiste shared a video of John Dumelo struggling to explain his side of the story to hard hitting questions by a host on Citi Tv on how he acquired the vehicle that was repossessed by the state.
It is public knowledge that national security operatives in 2017 re-possessed the vehicle after it was found the car belonged to the state.
The actor was reportedly trying to get the black Land Cruiser with registration GE 8118-16 re-sprayed. But he has explained, he had made part payment for the vehicle even though he knew it was a state property.
“…at that point in time when I was paying for the vehicle, it’s not a matter of it’s for the government or not. It was a matter of, okay John, when you finish paying, we’ll just do the change of ownership…” he explained in the interview with Citi TV.
But his colleague in the entertainment industry and also within his party was not impressed.
A Twitter user with the name “Rex Omarr@ shared the video and said John Dumelo attempted to steal the state property, an allegation the actor has repeatedly denied.
Another artiste, Samini in July 2019 had a spat with John Dumelo over the saga while the former UK High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin, has also mocked the movie star.
