A Presidential staffer, Charles Nii Teiko Tagoe, has commenced legal proceedings against the Herald newspaper and its publisher, Larry Dogbey, following a story of him being deported from America.
The newspaper reported that the Presidential staffer travelled to the United States recently on a diplomatic passport but was then deported straight back to Ghana on the same day.
In a sharp rebuttal on social media, Tagoe denied having a diplomatic passport and revealed he has informed his lawyers to take action.
“My attention has been drawn to a Herald Publication alleging my deportation from the United States despite using a diplomatic passport. I wish to state that I do not use a diplomatic passport and there is absolutely no truth in the story. I have referred the Herald Newspaper and its Editor Larry Dogbey to my Solicitors for the necessary legal action. Signed, Charles Nii Teiko Tagoe,” he wrote.
In responding to the threat from Tagoe, Dogbey published flight records of the Executive Assistant to the President’s trip to the United States, also revealing that he spent close to $10,000 on his ticket.
“Charles Nii Teiko Tagoe ..I didn’t know it was this easy to get you talking. You left Ghana on Tuesday 13th September 2022 onboard KLM through Schipol Amsterdam to New York. You returned the next day Wednesday 14th September 2022 by a direct flight from New York to Accra onboard Delta Airlines. You wanted to come back onboard same KLM through Schipol on Wednesday, 21 September 2022. Who buys a ticket for nearly UD$10,000 to see New York City through the windows of an airport? Waiting for your lawyers. Regards to your wife….” he said.
Tagoe pointed out more inconsistencies in Dogbe’s report and assured him they would meet in court.
“So I arrived at John F Kennedy International Airport on Delta Airlines flight DL 047 from Amsterdam and I was arrested and deported at Dallas, Texas International Airport, onboard a United Airlines according to Larry Dogbey and The Herald Newspaper? We shall meet very soon wai.” he replied.
