Following media reports on the alleged attack on a journalist working with Radio Tamale, Mr. Suuk Maxwell, by some police officers, the Northern Region police command has directed the Regional CID to conduct thorough investigations into the matter.
The journalist is scheduled to meet the investigators today, Friday, 9 August 2019 to assist with investigations.
The Police in a statement said the investigators have been given up to 16 August 2019 to complete the investigations and submit a report.
According to the report, police officers allegedly seized the journalist’s camera when he was covering the maiden appearance of suspects arrested as part of investigations into the murder of police Corporal Agatha Nana Nabin at the Tamale Magistrate court on 7 August 2019 and deleted its contents.
The Command said it picked the report from the social media and subsequently contacted Mr. Suuk to ascertain from him whether or not the incident took place.
The command said it is taking the report serious and any officer found to have misconducted himself in the matter will be sanctioned.
