The government has petitioned the National Media Commission (NMC) with respect to an investigative documentary released by the Multimedia Group.

The petition indicated that “the government of Ghana brings this complaint pursuant to article 167(b) of the Constitution as well as section 2(1) (b) of the National Media Commission Act, 1993 (Act 449) and invites you to investigate the publication, the subject matter of this complaint.”

The petition indicates that the narrative of the 22 minute documentary stated emphatically that a “militia” had been uncovered training and operating at a “Security Zone”, with the complicity of the Government of Ghana, and identified them as belonging to the New Patriotic Party.

The alleged Security Zone was identified as the Christiansborg Castle, Osu, Accra, and the “militia” was also named as “De-Eye Group”.
