Editor-In-Chief of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, has warned government about its action taken against Joy News on its latest documentary.
According to the ace journalist, government should stop placing emphasis on minor issues of the documentary.
He noted that there are more critical issues in the documentary that government must pay attention to.
In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Myjoyonline.com, Kweku Baako lamented on how government is treating the Joy News Documentary titled "Militia in the heart of the city".
Making his first public comments about the documentary, Kweku Baako said the use of militia in the documentary is not a substantive error.
He consequently quizzed why government would want to go into that and not deal with the issue of substance.
Kweku Baako stressed that the Christianborg castle no matter what is still a public space that ought not to have been used for such a purpose.
"If I were government, I do not think we should aggregate those perceived circumstances to negate the substance of the documentary" he advised.
The undercover work detailed how a group known as, De-Eye Group, had been using the former seat of government for training since the Akufo-Addo government was sworn in.
The group is led by Nana Wireko Addo alias ‘Choman’, the former personal bodyguard of President Nana Akufo-Addo and was described in 2012 as a “vigilante group” in a pro-government newspaper Daily Guide.
But the government has raised a number of concerns about the documentary which it says is “offensive” and has filed a complaint at the National Media Commission (NMC) against the media house.
Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, who filed the complaint stated that "nothing in the impugned documentary shows any activity by the said company bordering on a militia exercise.”
