Samuel K. Azugu, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, has allegedly been relocated from the National Security Secretariat at the Blue Gate to the Ghana Police Service’s National Operation HQ.
According to Citi News, the move has been verified, although it is unclear whether it has anything to do with his recent involvement in the ‘Citi Raid’ controversy.
The DSP is accused of sent armed National Security Operatives to Citi TV/FM to apprehend a journalist who reportedly acquired photos from a colleague who taped within the National Security Ministry’s confines. There were also charges of National Security personnel assaulting and abusing the journalist, which was later examined.
After finishing its investigations, the National Security Ministry determined that the officers’ actions were in violation of Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and ordered that the Director of Operations at the National Security, Lt. Col. Frank Agyeman, and three police officers be freed.
It’s unclear whether DSP Azugu is one of the officers named in the probes.
