The National Security official who assaulted a uniformed officer of the Ghana Armed Forces has been interdicted.

The official who has been identified in a Ministry of Information statement as Gerard Nana Osei-Tutu will also become a subject of investigation alongside his interdiction.

The Ministry of Information statement issued on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, and signed by the Minister, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah also condemned the attack on the military officer.
