A broadcast journalist with Citi FM/Citi TV, Caleb Kudah, has revealed how he was physically assaulted by National Security operatives who arrested him for filming some abandoned cars at the Ministry of National Security.
Caleb Kudah, who narrated his traumatic ordeal in a yet-to-be aired interview on The Point of View on Citi TV, was detained and interrogated for hours on Tuesday May 12, 2021.
“They pushed me and I sat on the chair. They [National Security operatives] slapped me from the back. I was trying to appeal to them that they had beaten me enough, but they were just slapping me from the back. I’ll be talking to another one and someone will just come and slap me from the back.”
He said one of the security operatives even kicked him in his groin.
The national security operatives arrested him for filming abandoned vehicles procured by MASLOC that had been parked at the Ministry for several years now.
The operatives subsequently raided Citi FM in an attempt to arrest Mrs. Zoe Abu- Baidoo Addo, who Caleb had sent some of the files he captured at the Ministry electronically.
the management of Citi FM/Citi TV prevented the operatives from capturing Zoe. They subsequently escorted her to the National Security Ministry where she was interrogated.
Both Mr. Kudah and Zoe Abu-Baidoo were released later in the evening on Tuesday.
The incident has been widely criticized by groups and individuals.
