A journalist with Asante Akyem Agogo based Adanse3 Fm, was subjected to severe abuse by thugs during Wednesday’s sod –cutting for the expansion of Juansa Government hospital in the Asante Akyem North district of the Ashanti Region.
The Broadcast Journalist who was assigned to cover sod –cutting for the expansion of Juansa Government hospital was accused of working for Adanse3 fm which incurred the wrath of thugs.
“I was assigned to cover a sod cutting ceremony for the commencement of a hospital project at Juansa on October 21, 2020 at exactly 10am. When I arrived at the ceremony and was recognized by some men as an Adanse3 FM’s reporter, they asked me “why Adanse3 FM didn’t assign a male Reporter "...I also argued them that I was very uncomfortable by the brouhaha and I requested for a serene environment to work because I don’t involve politics in my work, she narrated.
“A gentleman approached me to leave the ceremony because Member of Parliament for Asante Akyem North Constituency, Hon. Andy Appiah Kubi , is unhappy with Adanse3 FM reportage about him and if I am found around any event concerning Hon. Andy Appiah Kubi, it will result in an unfriendly situation”, she added.
According to her, another tried assaulting her but for the intervention of some journalists took her to safety.
