The Volta Region branch of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) is seeking compensation for Adom TV’s correspondent in the Oti region allegedly assaulted by Nkwanta South Constituency Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Prince Succeed Fiagadzi.
Obrempongba Kwame Owusu was given a dirty slap for capturing a brawl between two candidates at a polling station during the party’s parliamentary primary.
In the process, his video camera and mobile phone were damaged after the barbaric attack.
This angered the GJA Volta region chapter which has since boycotted all activities of the NDC in the region.
Another step they are taking is to seek compensation for the reporter who is currently nursing his wounds.
Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme, Wednesday, President of the Volta region GJA, A.B. Kafui Kanyi said they will not rest until they get justice for their colleague.
He said executives of the NDC are requesting for a meeting to settle the issue amicably.
Mr Kanyi said they will demand, among other things, that the party renders an unqualified apology, replaces the damaged camera and compensates the Adom TV reporter.
