We need an independent probe into Caleb Kudah's assault case - Ablakwa
Okudzeto Ablakwa says the National Security, which is being accused, cannot be allowed to investigate itself.
NDC MP for the North Tongu Constituency, Mr. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has called for an independent investigation into assault claims by Citi FM and Citi TV Journalist, Caleb Kudah, perpetuated.
Mr. Caleb Kudah, who was arrested on Tuesday, May 11, 2021, for filming some abandoned MASLOC cars parked within the premises of the National Security Ministry, said he was slapped several times by some of the operatives.
But the Ministry in responding to the allegations promised to take appropriate steps if the allegations are found to be true.
It further disclosed that it has initiated investigations into the matter.
But Okudzeto Ablakwa says the institution being accused cannot be allowed to investigate itself.
He therefore called for an independent probe into the matter.
“An independent investigation into the alleged brutalities against Caleb and the traumatic experience Zoe was exposed to, not National Security investigating itself, is the only process that will engender confidence and make the public trust the outcome as a credible one.”
“The Akufo-Addo Administration must stop this incestuous charade by showing real commitment.”
The North Tongu legislator made the call in a post via his social media pages on Thursday, May 13, 2021
