After his release, the Citi FM journalist narrated how he was manhandled by operatives of the National Security. He said; “All the police officers there became agitated and aggressive towards me, so they took me to a smaller office and I showed them my ID and told them that I am from Citi FM. I agree I shouldn’t have taken the photo, let’s delete it and please let me go, but they wouldn’t”.
“They slapped me from the back. These are police officers, men in uniform. Some were bearded and had guns…They were still beating me, slapping me from the back. I will be talking to another one and someone will come and slap me from the back and you feel dizzy at once. At this point, they had handcuffed me and every now and again, one will come and press it harder so that I feel the pain”, he further stated.
“Along the line, a man identified as Agyeman came in and I tried to talk to him, and immediately, he asked me to kneel down and he kicked me in the groin. I tried to plead with him that Sir they have beaten me enough. I beg you please let me go because he told me to kneel down, he kicked me in the groin”.
