The Ministry of National Security has reversed the secondment of Lieutenant Colonel Frank Agyeman, Director of Operations, and three police officers to the Ministry, for their inappropriate conduct over the arrest of Mr Caleb Kudah, a Citi FM journalist.
They are to report to their respective authorities at their original agencies for further investigations and disciplinary action.
A statement signed by Mr Albert Kan-Dapaah, the Minister of National Security, said the Committee set up by the Ministry to investigate a report of arrest of Mr Kudah on May 11, established that the conduct of Lt. Col. Agyeman, and the police officers was inappropriate and contravened the Ministry’s standard operating procedures.
It said the Committee also established that the journalist’s unauthorised entry into the premises of the Ministry of National security was unlawful.
The police officers were also to report to the Ghana Police Service for investigation and disciplinary action.
The incident led to public outcry and criticisms against the perpetrators, as well as calls for reforms by the security agencies in their handling of suspects.
