The Ministry of National Security has established in its investigations that the arrest and subsequent assault of Citi News’ Caleb Kudah by the Director of Operations at the National Security, Lieutenant Colonel Frank Agyeman, and other National Security operatives violated the Ministry’s operating standards.
It has thus decided to reverse the secondment of Colonel Frank Agyeman.
“The secondment of Lieutenant Colonel Frank Agyeman (Director of Operations) at the Ministry has been reversed. The officer is to report to the Chief of Defence Staff for further investigations and appropriate action” the Ministry said in a statement.
Three police officers involved in the assault have also been withdrawn and instructed to report to the Ghana Police Service for investigation.
The Ministry’s statement also said Mr. Kudah’s entry into the National Security Ministry was unlawful, though it did not state which specific law was breached.

Mr. Caleb Kudah was arrested at the National Security Ministry for filming abandoned MASLOC vehicles parked at the premises of the Ministry.
