Interior Minister, Ambrose Derry has revealed that Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Samuel Azugu has been transferred from the National Security.

Speaking on the floor of Parliament, yesterday, he said DSP Azugu has been moved to the National Operation Headquarters of the Ghana Police Service as of May 27, 2021.

When asked about the reason for Azugu’s transfer, Mr.Derry told Parliament he was not in a position to answer whether or not DSP Azugu was removed from the National Security Ministry because of the recent assault on a Citi FM journalist or the recommendations of the Emile Short Commission.

DSP Azugu thrust into the limelight following his appearance before the Emile Short Commission Hearing owing to his involvement in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Bye-Election Violence in 2019.

The Emile Short Commission issued a report recommending, among other things, that DSP Azugu be reassigned to the Ghana Police Service, his mother organization.

Two years down the line, DSP Azugu came under public scrutiny after the alleged assault on Citi FM’s journalist, Caleb Kudah, by National Security operatives under his instructions.
