Government must address crisis of impunity, lawlessness by security operatives


Summary short_text

A former director of the School of Communication Studies at the University of Ghana, Prof. Audrey Gadzekpo says there is an urgent need for the government to address the growing incidents of assault and torture of individuals including journalists carried out by national security operatives.

Prof. Gadzekpo's comment was in reaction to the arrest and assault of Citi FM's Caleb Kudah by armed national security operatives as well as their invasion of the media house's premises to arrest another journalist, Zoe Abu-Baidoo Addo last Tuesday.

According to her, Ghanaians must be concerned about the kind of treatments meted out to people by national security operatives in the country, adding that the National Security Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah, must take full responsibility for the problematic behaviour and tasked to ensure that it is addressed.
