Three police officers, who were allegedly involved in the assault on Ghanaian Times journalists on 14th March, 2019, have been interdicted on the directions of the Inspector General of Police.


The three police officers are Inspector Isaac Opare of the Ministries Division, Sergeant Ebenezer Akrofi of the Accra Regional Police Headquarters, and Lance Corporal Evans Kofi Nti of the Police Visibility Unit.

In a press release signed by the Director of Public Affairs, ACOP David Eklu, the IGP has further directed the Accra Regional Crime Officer to take over the investigation of the case from the Ministries Police Station.

He has also directed the Commander of the Accra Central Motor Traffic Unit to take over the Motor Traffic Accident aspect of the case.

The Police Professional and Standard Bureau has also been directed to look into the conduct of the Police officers who were on duty at the Ministries Police Station, on the day of the assault.

On 14th March, 2019 around the Kinbu Senior High School, three journalists, Salifu Abdul Rahman, Malik Sulemana and Raissa Sambou were physically brutalised by some police officers, for engaging one Sergeant Ebenezer Akrofi, for jumping a red light, and subsequently running his unregistered motorbike into their official assignment vehicle, leading to the breaking of its mirror and windscreen and a dent in the bumper.
