Akufo-Addo orders for interdiction of Nat’l Security operative who assaulted soldier

President Akufo-Addo has ordered for the interdiction of the national security officer captured on tape beating up a military man.

A Senior Non-Commissioned Officer, who has been identified as WO1 Mashud Salia, was reportedly physically assaulted and handcuffed while in uniform over his inability to give way to a convoy of four vehicles while driving on the Tema-Akosombo highway at the Ashaiman Tulaku section.

In a statement signed by Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, on December 1, 2020, President Akufo-Addo said he learnt with dismay reports of an attack on a soldier by an official of the Bureau of National Communications of the National Security Council Secretariat, Gerard Nana Osei-Tutu.

“Upon the President’s instruction, the Ministry responsible for National Security, has interdicted, with immediate effect, the said Mr Gerard Nana OSEI-TUTU and has commenced a full investigation into the incident,”

“The military constitutes a key layer in the country’s security architecture. Any infringement on the institution and its officers will not be tolerated,” the statement added.
