Deputy Superintendent of Police, Samuel K. Azugu, has reportedly been transferred from the National Security Secretariat at the Blue Gate in to the National Operation headquarters of the Ghana Police Service.
Citi News reports say they have confirmed the transfer but are unable to ascertain whether it has any link with his recent involvement in the ‘Citi Raid’ scandal.
DSP is alleged to have sent armed National Security Operatives to Citi TV/FM to arrest a journalist who allegedly received pictures received from colleague who filmed within the precincts of the National Security Ministry. There were also allegations of assault and other abuses on the journalist by the National Security operatives which were subsequently investigated.
The National Security Ministry on concluding its investigations found that the officers conduct was in breach of Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and directed that Director of Operations at the National Security, Lt. Col. Frank Agyeman and three police officers be released from the National Security.
It is not immediately clear if DSP Azugu is one of the police officers who were fingered in the investigations.
