Citi FM journalist Assault: Nat’l security breached security procedures; Head of Operations sanctioned

An investigation carried out into the actions taken by some National Security personnel has concluded that the operatives breached the national security operating procedures.

The Ministry of National Security has therefore, sanctioned its Director of Operations, Lieutenant Colonel Frank Agyeman, by reversing his secondment.

He has further been directed to report to the Chief of Defense Staff for further investigation and appropriate action.

The action was taken regardless of the Committee’s conclusion that Citi FM journalist, Caleb Kudah’s unauthorised entry into the premises of the Ministry of National Security was unlawful.

The National Security Minister made this known in a statement issued on Friday, May 21, 2021.

Three police officers attached to the outfit, and who were involved in raiding the Radio station have been withdrawn and are report to the Ghana Police Service for investigation and disciplinary action.


Mr. Caleb Kudah, a journalist with Accra-based Citi FM, was arrested last week and detained for filming the premises of the National Security Ministry.

The heavily armed operatives, after arresting the Back Page host, stormed the premises of the Adabraka-based station in a Rambo-style with the intention to arrest another colleague, Zoe Abu-Baidoo whom Caleb was said to have shared the video files with.

The move has since sparked public uproar and debate has intensified, following claims of ethnocentric comments and assaults the journalist claimed to have received from the operatives while in custody.
