Citi FM and Citi TV’s Caleb Kudah has been released following his arrest by National Security Operatives this afternoon.
He was released after more than an hour of interrogation at the National Security Ministry.
Caleb, host of Citi TV’s Back Page was arrested around 2:00 pm today for filming at the premises of the National Security Ministry which is considered a restricted security zone.
He reportedly took pictures and videos of vehicles that were parked at the premises and forwarded same to his colleague journalist, Zoe Abu-Baidoo.
Later about seven heavily armed officers in three vehicles subsequently stormed the premises of Citi FM/Citi TV in an attempt to arrest, Zoe Abu-Baidoo, Caleb’s alleged ally.
While at the premises, the officers tried to overpower Zoe, who at the time was standing at the company’s car park but Zoe bolted and reported the issue to her superiors.
Management of Citi FM headed by the Chief Executive Officer, Samuel Attah-Mensah, who was present at the time of the incident, intervened and together with Zoe and other managers of Citi FM/Citi TV, followed the officers to the National Security Ministry.
Zoe Abu-Baidoo was released after interrogation.
