“I did not break any law for the police to subject me to such despicable and horrendous attacks” he stated on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem Friday.

Malik and two of his colleagues, Salifu Abdul Rahman and Raissa Sambou Ebu were on Thursday March 14, 2019 allegedly assaulted at Kinbu in Accra.

Their only offense was filming the officers for traffic offence and using unregistered motorcycle.

The 10 police officers who were not happy that the journalists had tried to record them, pounced on the journalists and physically assaulted them.

Raissa, a lactating mother passed out and was rushed to the emergency unit of the Ridge Hospital for medical attention.

Narrating his ordeal, Malik said it is obvious from the comments the police made as they assaulted him that they have targeted journalists in the country.

He thanked Raissa for hiding his phone which he intends to use as a form of evidence for justice.

Malik said even though he was yet to write his statement, he can identify all the police officers who assaulted them.

“I will see my lawyers about the issue and pursue it to the logical conclusion,” he added.
