The Minister of National Security, Kan Dapaah, has concluded that the actions taken by operatives of that outfit against Citi FM and two of its journalists, breached the national security operating procedures.
Kan Dapaah emphatically pointed this out in a statement issued on Friday, May 21, 2021.
The Minister had commissioned an investigation into the assault on Citi News’ Caleb Kudah and the raid on Citi FM and Citi TV by its officers.
The Ministry of National Security has thus withdrawn its Director of Operations, Lieutenant Colonel Frank Agyeman, and will also investigate three other police officers attached to the outfit, and institute disciplinary action against them.
Mr. Dapaa in the statement said: “The Committee [that investigated the case] established that the conduct of Lieutenant Colonel Frank Agyeman (Director of Operations) and some police officers at the Ministry on the said day was inappropriate and contravened the Ministry’s standard operating procedures.”
“The secondment of Lieutenant Colonel Frank Agyeman (Director of Operations) at the Ministry has been reversed. The officer is to report to the Chief of Defence for further investigations and appropriate action” he added in the statement.
