She is said to have asked the guards to sack the reporter from the assembly and as if the guards also had a premeditated agenda of executing same pounced on the hapless reporter.

The guards, our source noted in Rambo style bundled the reporter out of the place, ignoring the promptings of onlookers that the reporter is a well known face in media circles.


Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper late Wednesday evening, Joe Awuah with a trembling voice confirmed the assault on his person.

Struggling to put his speech together, Mr Awuah said he had only gone to the KMA to cross-check an information he had gotten regarding some operations the Assembly was alleged to have undertaken.

He said while on his way to the Public Relations Office, two stoutly built men with KMA security inscription on the caps and shirts they wore bundled him out of the place.

Mr Awuah said before he could ask what his crime was while being carried away the guards gave him hefty blows to drown the question he wanted to pose.

‘’My brother, I still feel pains all over my body and what baffles me is that I had done nothing to warrant such treatment. I was just carrying out my duty at a public place and to be beaten to the point of losing all my belongings because I was fishing for information is strange’’, Mr Awuah muffled.
