About a week ago, a Ghanaian journalist called Caleb Kudah was apprehended and assaulted by some members of the national security.
The journalist who works with Accra-based media outlets, Citi Tv and Citi Fm was manhandled by the national security for unlawfully filming abandoned cars parked at the premises of the National security.
This became a trending issue for almost 3 days on social media, some were of the view that the journalist shouldn't have gone there to report on such issues, others also condemned the national security in the way and manner on how the matter was handled.
Due to this, the Ministry of National Security decided to investigate the assault on Caleb Kudah by Director of Operations at the National Security, Lieutenant Colonel Frank Agyeman, and other National Security operatives.
In a statement released this morning, the Ministry found Colonel Frank Agyeman guilty of his actions and has currently been withdrawn from his position.

“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 Staff for further investigations and appropriate action” the Ministry said in a statement.
