Police officers on Tuesday, May 11, 2021, arrested Caleb Kudah, a broadcast journalist with Citi FM and Citi TV for allegedly filming on the premises of the National Security Ministry.
According to the police, the premises of the National Security Ministry is a restricted security zone where filming is not allowed without permission.
About seven heavily armed officers subsequently stormed the premises of Citi FM/Citi TV in an attempt to arrest another Citi News journalist, Zoe Abu-Baidoo, whom they claimed had received files from Caleb Kudah.
The management of Citi FM/Citi TV intervened and followed the officers together with Zoe to the Ministry of National Security for interrogation.
Citi News’ Security Correspondent, Anass Seidu, in giving further details on the matter said, “Caleb Kudah visited someone at the National Security and was arrested after filming at the premises of the Ministry.”
According to him, after the arrested, the operatives detected that Caleb had sent whatever he had filmed to another colleague, Zoe Abu-Baidoo, so they followed up to Citi FM with heavily armed men to arrest Zoe.
Anass said “when they got here, the management of Citi FM and Citi TV joined the team back to the National Security Ministry with Zoe, but after some interrogation, Zoe was allowed to leave but Caleb was still being interrogated at the time we left.”
He said they have information that Caleb Kudah will soon be released.
