The Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) has called on the police to arrest and prosecute those who were involved in the shooting incident at the centre in the Ablekuma Central Constituency which led to injuries to two journalists. The association says it a swift reaction from the law enforcement agency Will serve as a deterrent to other hooligans who may want to perpetrate such violence in the future.
Addressing the media at a news conference in Accra, the President Of the GIA, Mr Roland Affail Monney, said
What happened at the centre was a dastardly act that must dealt with promptly and decisively.
“We are calling on the Ghana police to, as a matter of urgency, arrest and prosecute those involved in the incident, and also call on the incumbent Member of parliament of the constituency to produce the alleged shooter to face the full rigours of the law,” he stated.
He said although the general election process had peaceful, such isolated cases of violence were unacceptable and must be condemned totally. Collation was ongoing at the Ablekuma Central Constituency when a thug alleged to be a sympathizer of the incumbent MP in the area shot a gun which injured Doreen Ampofo of GBC radio and Pius Asiedu of Newswatch.com
