The editor of Whatsapp News, David Tamakloe who was arrested on Thursday April 1 has been granted bail on Friday April 2.

 

Earlier, South Dayi Member of Parliament Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor called for the release saying “Rambo-styled approach of effecting arrest of citizens has been a subject for concern to many.”

 

“It comes as a surprise that nothing seems to be changing in this regard. Mr. Tamakloe was reported to have been picked up at gun point sometime yesterday. And particularly, on the eve of Good Friday knowing very well that he would be kept in police custody until after Monday, is most inhumane, unacceptable, backward and smacks of abuse of police powers,” he said in a statement.

 

“News broke yesterday that Mr. David Tamakloe was arrested by some unidentified security officials allegedly from the National Security.

“A colleague lawyer, who followed up on the matter at the Police station has recounted how the officers were unable to provide any reasons for his arrest. Just none and yet he has been denied police inquiry deliberately.

 

“It is important that our security operate on the basis of transparency and with a certain sense of integrity. The image of the security agencies continue to decline over the years following the arbitrary and unexplained arrests of innocent citizens,” he said in a statement.
