According to a statement signed by Chief Director Lt. Col. Ababio Serebour (rtd), it “takes, with all seriousness, the allegations of manhandling” made by Citi FM journalists Caleb Kudah and Zoe Abu-Baidoo during their interrogation by operatives of the outfit for taking videos of a no-photography zone.
