One of the two journalists of modern Ghana who were allegedly tortured by personnel of the National Security after being picked up from their offices, Emmanuel Britwum, has denied claims of torture as has been reported in the media.
Mr Britwum’s denial comes on the back of his editor’s complaint to the police that he had been tortured while in the custody of National Security officials even though he has denied reports that his manhood was tasered during his 48-hour detention.
Emmanuel Britwum in a statement released through his lawyer, Debora Asabere-Ameyaw on Wednesday said: “he was neither tortured nor brutalised during his arrest and subsequent detention by the National Security Operatives on Thursday, June 27, 2019, over a matter presently under investigations.”
“For the avoidance of doubt, my client wishes to state categorically that he neither witnessed Mr Ajafor being tortured or brutalised nor did he elect anyone to speak publicly on his behalf on the matter in issue,” the statement added.
