Asense Akroso Manso lawmaker, George Kwame Aboagye, has questioned the intentions behind Citi FM journalist, Caleb Kudah, filming of abandoned MASLOC cars parked within the premises of the National Security Ministry which led to his arrest.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament said the renowned broadcast journalist had no business visiting the Blue Gate to film the supposed abandoned cars.
“Firstly, the premises he went was wrong. Where was he taking the filming?” he quizzed,
He told Pato, Kwaku Owusu Adjei on Adwenekasa on Original 91.9FM on Friday morning that “Scores of people sell the national asset to foreigners. We have some notorious foreigners in the country, I won’t mention their name. Our secret is being exposed. Currently, our symbolism clothes Adinkra and others have been stolen and they are being printed outside the country.”
Mr. Aboagye , however, argues that perhaps, the Omni Media Limited journalist was an ally to a foreign country and was in the process of filming the abandoned cars for his selfish interest.
“We do not know if he would sell the pictures or display it on social media platform, Facebook. We should condemn what’s wrong,” the unhappy MP said.
“He was saying he had to report the wrongdoing at the facility. That one I can’t determine whether it is right or wrong. We have Anas Aremeyaw Anas is the country, right? Has anyone seen him secret filming? If you film at the National Security premises it insinuates you are darling them.”
To him, apparently, what prompted the National Security operatives to cause the arrest of Caleb Kudah varies from the reason which has dominated public discourse.
Caleb Kudah, a news anchor with Citi FM and Citi TV was arrested at the Ministry of National Security for secretly recording some alleged abandoned cars within the MASLOC yard on Tuesday, May 11, 2021.
According to the Back Page host, while in their custody he was slapped repeatedly by the national security operatives.
“I was trying to appeal to them that they had beaten me enough but they were just slapping me from the back”, he narrated.
He added that “I’ll be talking to another one and someone will just come and slap me from the back.”
