Police Debunk Reports Of Arresting BBC Journalists At #OccupyJulorbiHouse Demo

In the midst of the #OccupyJulorbiHouse demo controversy, the Ghana Police Service has refuted claims that its men arrested some BBC journalists on the demonstration grounds.

Following the reports, the police in a statement have described the claims by a section of the media as erroneous.

The statement however explained two people who identified themselves as journalists during the screening process after the mass arrest were immediately released.

However, the statement failed to confirm the identity of these two journalists.

The service is therefore calling on the public to disregard what it describes as a false report.

“The facts are that in dispersing the illegal demonstrators, a group of them were picked and sent to the police station. During their screening process, two persons identified themselves as journalist and were immediately allowed to go,” parts of the statement read.

The police continued that, “while we assure the public of our commitment to work with all stakeholders in our quest to ensure security, law, and order, we want to urge all the other stakeholders to be circumspect in the discharge of their responsibilities since they implications on the image and reputation of other stakeholders.”
