Information reaching the front desk of Ghbase.com suggests that Caleb Kudah, a journalist with Citi FM/TV has been picked up by armed National Security Operatives at his workplace for filming near their installation few hours ago.
According to report by one of the staff members called Fentuo Tahiru on his Facebook page, the Caleb and Zoe Abu Baidoo was arrested on the premises of the National Security Ministry for filming some seized vehicles which they claimed was unlawful.
The team arrived at the Adabraka-based media house to arrest Zoe Abu Baidoo who they claimed was an ally to Caleb 7 of them had to chase her to the kitchen of the office before capturing her.
Narrating the orderal, Tahiru wrote;
My colleague Zoe Abu-Baidoo is back in the office after being questioned. Caleb Kudah is still being questioned at the National security following his arrest earlier. The armed officers who raided Citi FM’s premises this afternoon say Caleb’s arrest was because he was filming a national security installation and not because of the videos he took from the demonstration. They wanted to arrest Zoe because they say their checks on Caleb’s phone showed he sent the videos to Zoe.
Nobody has said Ghana police should not do their jobs but the manner they did it today scared every single person in the office. 7 strong men wielding automatic rifles pursued Zoe from the car park into the kitchen, in Rambo style. If you really wanted to arrest Zoe, did you need all this? 7 men chasing this girl – imagine the trauma. No respect for the managers of the station, no word with anyone and just start chasing people around in their office. And what’s her crime? Caleb sent her a video. That’s what warranted this show of needless bravado? Is this really safe? The entire staff was scared to hell. What if a gun went off in the process?Sammens and Bernard had to intervene to prevent Zoe’s arrest before driving her, along with the handcuffed Caleb back to the national security office. I have too many questions but this was scary.”
Meanwhile the Director of Citi FM/TV Samuel Attah Mensah and Bernard Koku Avle are yet to issue out any formal notice of the incident.
