Assault on Caleb Kudah: Conduct of Lieutenant Colonel Frank Agyeman And some police officers inappropriate – Ministry of National Security
Following an investigation launched into the alleged assault on Citi FM/TV journalist Caleb Kudah on May 11, 2021, a committee set up by the Ministry has released its findings and recommendations.
According to a statement by the Ministry of National Security, the Committee 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 Committee also established that the journalist’s unauthorised entry Into the premises of the Ministry of National Security was unlawful.
The Ministry has since directed that the secondment of Lieutenant Colonel Frank Agyeman (Director of Operations) at the Ministry be reversed. He is to report to the Chief of Defence Staff for further investigation and appropriate action.
The three (3) Police officers involved in the assault have been also withdrawn and are to report to the Ghana Police Service for investigation and disciplinary action.
The Ministry of National Security has since assured the general public and particularly all media practitioners that it will expeditiously investigate any complaints against any personnel of its Agencies and put in measures to continue to ensure the highest professional standards to engender public trust.
