The management of the Ghana Museums and Monuments Board has cleared that the Christianborg Castle popularly known as the Osu Castle now remains a Museum and not a security installation as being reported in the media.
This comes on the back of an exposé by investigative journalist Manessah Azuri Awuni which uncovered the Osu Castle purportedly being used as a training camp for an alleged militia group.
Many questioned the move and asked government to offer explanation as to how a security installation such as the Osu Castle became a training ground for alleged militia.
But in a statement issued by the Ghana Museums and Monuments Board and signed by Acting Executive Director, Kingsley Ofosu Ntiamoah, said the Board took over the facility effective 5th March, 2017.
“The Osu Castle is not a security installation. The Military and security sensitivities associated with it has since been withdrawn. It now has a similar status as the Cape Coast and Elmina Castles.” said the Board in its statement.
