Stop this stupidity - Sefa-Kayi slams government's "use" of National Security operatives

Veteran journalist, Kwame Sefa Kayi, has slammed the government and its tendency to employ some in the National Security apparatus into silencing innocent Ghanaians with dissenting views.

Kwame Sefa-Kayi, the host of Peace FM's flagship morning programme, Kokrokoo, has taken a swipe at government for its usage of National Security operatives to upset and intimidate members of the public.

His outburst comes after an official of National Security reportedly pulled a gun on a private motorist at the Spintex road in Accra and threatened to kill him.

Sefa-Kayi, affectionately called the Chairman General, while speaking on Kokrokoo on Peace FM on July 4, disclosed that the supposed National Security officer intimidated the private motorist under no genuine reasons.

The identity of the officer in question was not immediately revealed but according to the ace broadcaster, he was using a Toyota Landcruiser with registration No. BA 657-17.

He narrated that the private motorist (name unknown) took shots of the security officer over what he suspected was an abuse of traffic regulations.

According to Sefa-Kayi, the officer, while driving on the Spintex road around 5 pm, unnecessarily blew the siren of the Toyota Landcruiser vehicle he was driving, an act he termed as ‘stupid’.

Sefa Kayi said, the National Security operative upon realising the man had taken shots of his act, hurriedly turned his vehicle and frightened the man for filming him. He then pulled his gun and threatened "I will shoot you", said, Sefa Kayi.

"The guy has since been traumatised because no man has pulled a gun on him before", he disclosed on live radio.

"If this stupidity doesn't stop, one day, some brave guy will sacrifice himself and fight back."

Meanwhile, information available to suggests that an Accra High Court has freed two journalists who work with ModernGhana, an online platform, and an editor who works at Peace FM.

The decision was reached after the state decided to withdraw the case it, per an application by senior state attorney, Stella Ohene Appiah.
