Executive Director of the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) Mr Suleman Braimah has said the way and manner the two journalists with Citi FM were picked up by the Police on Tuesday May 11 is an indication of an attempt to make the Akufo-Addo administration unpopular.
He wondered why the Police will decided to act in this manner at a this moment.
“I am becoming convinced that some people just want to sabotage the government. If not, Why? Armed police officers besiege,” he said in a tweet.
A broadcast journalist with Citi TV and Citi FM, Caleb Kudah was arrested by police officers Tuesday for allegedly filming at the premises of the National Security ministry.
According to the management of the station, about seven heavily armed police officers stormed the premises of Citi FM/Citi TV in an attempt to arrest, Zoe Abu-Baidoo, another broadcast journalist, whom they claimed had received files from Caleb Kudah.
The management of Citi FM/Citi TV is said to have intervened and followed the officers together with Zoe to the Ministry of National Security for interrogation after which she was discharge.
He has since been released.
