The Criminal Investigative Department has begun an investigation into death threat on Multimedia’s journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni.
The threat comes in the wake of his latest investigation which exposed an alleged militia group called De-Eye which was training at the Osu Castle.
In a letter, the CID asked the management of Radio XYZ to release Mr. Maase for a meeting on Tuesday.
“There is report of threat of death on the life of Joy FM Journalist. Mr Mannesseh Azure Awuni. This threat happened in the wake of the airing of the documentary titled ‘MILITIA IN THE HEART OF THE NATION’ on -DE EYE GROUP’ or Joy TV on 7th March 2019.
“In view of the above, it would be appreciated if you could release Mr Mugabe Maase to confer with the undersigned on Tuesday, 12 March 2019, at 4pm. We would also be grateful if Mr. Maase could submit any information that he may have to assist the Police to avert any plan or whatever threat on the life of Mr Mannesseh Azure Awuni.” – the letter said.
The investigative piece by Manneseh Azure titled ‘Militia in the heart of the nation’ alleged a state-sponsored training of military persons at the behest of the president, Nana Akufo-Addo.
