“I had to mention that I come from Cape Coast in order to escape from further beatings. If I had confirmed that I am an Ewe, I would have received further beatings.”
Those were the words of embattled journalist Caleb Kudah who was picked by the National Security at the precincts of Citi FM at Adabraka in Accra on May 11 2021 for filming a security zone.
After he was sent to the National Security office herein Accra together with his colleague Zoe Abu-Baidoo, Caleb Kudah said he was subjected to some beatings by one of the men.
In fact, he had to denounce his tribe since confirming it would have put him in a grave situation where the beatings would have doubled or he would have been severely maltreated.
Speaking on Citi TV’s Point Of View show last night, Caleb Kudah told the host, Bernard Avle all that he went through and how his tribal inclination had to be denounced in order to save him from further beatings.

Meanwhile, some Ghanaians believe Caleb Kudah faltered by taking visuals of the restricted National Security zone and sharing it. But as to whether the beating he was subjected to was justified or not remain a different conversation.
