The National Security Ministry has stated that it has begun investigations into allegations made by Citi News' journalist, Caleb Kudah, that he was assaulted by some National Security operatives.
In response to the arrest of Caleb Kudah and Zoe Abu-Baidoo, the ministry promised to take appropriate steps if the allegations are found to be true.
The Ministry’s statement however failed to make mention of the raid at Citi FM that has been largely condemned.
On Tuesday, May 14, 2021, Caleb Kudah was arrested by the national security operatives for filming some grounded MASLOC vehicles parked at the premises despite the no photography directive.
Caleb Kudah opened up for the first time about the horrific experience he went through in the hands of the national security operatives.
Narrating his traumatic ordeal, he said he was detained and interrogated for several hours amidst torture and maltreatment.
Caleb said he was pushed down to sit, was butted in the groin area, and was slapped from the back while trying to appeal to them that they had beaten him enough.
In a related development, the president of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA), Roland Affail Monney has broken his silence on the incident involving the two journalists from Citi FM/TV and the National Security Operatives.
Commenting on the issue which has become the topic of public discussion since Tuesday, May 11, he said Caleb Kudah breached a GJA code of ethics.
According to him, filming at the National Security premises was in breach of the Association’s code of ethics.
