Multimedia Group files complaint against Ken Agyapong for threatening Journalist. 46

 

 

The Multimedia Group has filed a formal complaint against Kennedy Agyapong for threatening Erastus Asare Donkor, a journalist with the media conglomerate.

The Multimedia Group in a letter dated July 13, 2021, addressed to the Deputy Regional Commander, Ashanti Region, demanded security protection for Erastus Asare Donkor.

Mr. Agyapong, the MP for Assin Central, is reported to have allegedly threatened to attack Mr Asare Donkor, “for the journalistic work that the latter undertook during the recent shootings and killing incident at Ejura” on Net 2 TV, a television station owned by the MP.

He was captured in an interview claiming that “if he [Mr Agyapong] were President, he would have ensured that Erastus Asare Donkor is beaten mercilessly.”

The statement issued by the Group cited events that led to the murder of an investigative journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale, saying the threats by the MP against Mr. Donkor as “life-threatening”, thus, should not be taken lightly.

The complaint was copied to 14 officials, including the Chief of Staff, Ministers of Interior and National Security, the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Ashanti Regional Minister, the Inspector General of Police, the Director of Criminal Investigation Department.
