Journalist Petitions US Embassy Over Alleged Deportation Of Akuffo Addo’s ‘ ‘Boy’

Larry Dogbey, publisher of The Herald newspaper, has disclosed that he is petitioning the US Embassy in Accra on a recent trip to the US by presidential staffer Charles Nii Teiko Tagoe.

A recent article in The Herald claimed that Mr. Tagoe had booked a KLM flight to the United States, but upon arrival at Dallas International Airport, he had been detained and sent back to Ghana.

The staff member, who allegedly has a diplomatic passport, reportedly departed Accra on September 13 and traveled via Schipol Airport in Amsterdam to Dallas. He reportedly landed in the US on September 14 and flew back on a United Airlines flight the next day.

It went on to say that the journalist had been instructed to get approval from the Accra Embassy before making another attempt to enter the US.

Although he has not yet commented on whether he arrived back in Ghana on the 14th, Mr. Tagoe denied having a diplomatic passport and being expelled in a Facebook post. He also expressed the intention to sue the journalist for the article.

On Tuesday, September 27, Dogbey revealed via his Facebook account that he had ordered his lawyers to get in touch with the US Embassy to inquire about the staff member's trip. Dogbey has subsequently posted what appears to be Tagoe's flight itinerary.
