Rainbow Radio’s roving reporter Nhyiraba Kwabena Asirifi was assaulted and had his mobile device damaged by some traders at Abossey Okai today, Tuesday, May 24, 2022.
He had gone to the area to report on the flooding situation after the heavy downpour which flooded some parts of Accra, including Abossey Okai.
Narrating his ordeal, the reporter said ”I was reporting from the area where some shops had flooded. All of a sudden, some young men pounced on me and poured water on me. They said I had no right to report from the area. My iPhone 11pro was damaged”.
He described the incident as terrible and traumatising, especially when he was only on the field to do his work.
He condemned the attack and wondered why some persons would continue to attack journalists who work in their interest.
