Lawyer Nii Kpakpo Samoa Addo, one of the Legal Representatives for Emmanuel Ajarfor, editor of Modern Ghana who was allegedly tortured by National Security Operatives has urged the public to disregard the “no torture” claims by the National Security.

This revelation by the lawyer follows media that medical reports have proved the journalist was not tortured after the National Security earlier denied allegations by Ajarfor and a U-turn by Mr Britwum a reporter at ModernGhana, quashing his earlier claims of torture.

In Facebook post on renowned journalist Mabel Aku Banaseh’s timeline, the lawyer Nii Kpakpo Samoa Addo wrote:

“Disregard any story circulating that there is a medical report which exonerates the national security from the allegation of torture. The journalist was given heavy doses of pain killers when he first reported to the Police hospital and we have evidence of same. Those who are panicky should relax. They will hear from us before close of day.”

“And yes we will seek justice for the journalist by both criminal and civil means. Luckily he lodged a complaint at the Legon police station. He is able to identify those who assaulted him. He knows where they work. We will follow up the report. There will be an identification parade,” the post disclosed.
