Mr. Kudah was alleged to have taken some videos and photos on abandoned MASLOC vehicles parked at the National Security Ministry and sent it to his colleague Zoe Abu-Baidoo.

The General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana, Rev. Dr. Cyril G.K Fayose, receiving the petition said Ghana is a democratic State, so the rights of every citizen must be respected. He assured the media house of the Council's support in order to bring an end to the menace.

Mr. Avle was accompanied by Mr. Richard Mensah, Director of TV, Mrs. Vivian Kai Lokko, Head of News, Pastor Mawuli Chikata and Mr. Selorm Adornu.
