In a press statement issued by the Acting Director of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service, ACP Kwesi Ofori to apologize to journalists for the altercation this morning, the police said “a team is currently studying the footage of the alleged assault of some of the journalists to identify the alleged perpetrators for immediate prosecution”.
The prevention of some journalists from entering the courtroom during the arraignment of Rev. Owusu Bempah and his accomplices by the church members was also acknowledged and apologized for by the police.
“We apologize unreservedly for this inconvenience and we wish to give the assurance that journalists will be fully protected and allowed to do their work at all times including the coverage of this case”, the statement added.
