Radio presenter attacked by opposition party militants
Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA)'s correspondent reported that the journalist was attacked at about 10:00 p.m. (local time) at the Sports Recreational Centre in Asokwa near the Baba Yara Sports Stadium. The attack occurred after Kusi-Poku's weekly political programme "Hard Ball", which had discussed an impending NPP-proposed constitutional amendment.
The correspondent said the August 15 edition hosted four representatives of the NPP including Hilda Addo, a former member of parliament for Kwadaso Constituency, who spoke strongly against the proposed amendments.
According to Kusi-Poku, three well-built men riding in a taxi cab hit him on his chest several times and told him in a threatening manner to stop creating confusion in the party. He has since been treated and discharged at a hospital.
Meanwhile, the Asokwa police have begun investigations into the matter.
