Two ModernGhana journalist with Samson Lardy Anyenini

ModernGhana journalist, Emmanuel Britwum, showed police “visible signs” of assault after he was arrested by national security operatives.

A police complaint form captures this testimony when he reported June 27.


The journalist is at the centre of controversy after he said he was coached to make allegations of assault at a press conference organised by the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) condemning the incident.


Lawyers assembled by the GJA and supported by an NGO were to represent the journalist.


But by sunset after the press conference, Britwum had denied being assaulted.

He got new legal counsel and days later said he was coached at the July 2, press conference.


However, fresh details show five clear days before meeting the GJA-backed lawyers, the journalist had told the police at Legon in Accra, he was assaulted.


He filed that report without any lawyer and was accompanied by the manager of the company, his brother and his editor Emmanuel Ajarfor who has maintained he was assaulted.
