Minority leader of Ghana’s Parliament Hon Haruna Idrisu has said that President Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo-Addo and his NPP government are reducing Ghana to a police state.
The foregoing owes to the brutal arrest of Citi Fm’s journalist Caleb Kudah.
Commenting on how the journalist was arrested by security officers on Tuesday, he noted that the excesses are becoming too much and that the government of the day must watch it by taking the necessary steps to address the menace.
He heavily lambasted President Akuffo Addo by saying that the President before assuming power was probably preaching fundamental human rights and freedom “only seeking office of the President but not serving with respect for those rights and freedom as President.”
Still in his comment, he described the arrest as very disappointing, explaining that “journalists are entitled to practice their vacation freely”.
He made the above statement in an interview with Joy News on Thursday during the celebration of EID Mubarak.
Mr. Kudah was arrested at the National Security Ministry on Tuesday for filming abandoned MASLOC vehicles parked at the premises of the Ministry.
According to citinewsrom.com report, he was then brutalised by the security officers.
