News reaching Mintah.net indicates that three police officers involved in the attack on Citi News’ Caleb Kudah, have been withdrawn from the National Security Ministry.
These three policemen are to face disciplinary action from the Ghana Police Service.
“The three (3) police officers involved have been withdrawn and are to report to the Ghana Police Service for investigation and disciplinary action,” a statement from Kan-Dapaah stated.
Caleb Kudah was arrested by the National Security operatives for filming some grounded MASLOC vehicles parked at the premises despite the no photography directive.
In an attempt to arrest Zoe Abu- Baidoo Addo, who Caleb had reportedly sent some of the files he captured at the Ministry to, they raided the premises of Citi FM with guns, causing fear and panic.
Luckily for Zoe, the management of Citi FM/Citi TV prevented the operatives from taking her away and was subsequently escorted to their office where she was interrogated and left to go.
Meanwhile, the National Security has established in its investigations that the arrest and assault of Citi News’ journalist by the Director of Operations at the National Security, Lieutenant Colonel Frank Agyeman, violated the Ministry’s operating standards.
In a report filed by CitiNews, the security outfit has therefore decided to withdraw Lt. Colonel Frank Agyeman from the National Security. Lt Col Agyeman is to report to the Chief of Defence Staff for further investigations and appropriate action.
