The Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) has called on the Ghana Police Service (GPS) to prosecute the attackers who stormed the studios of United Television (UTV) during the live broadcast of United Showbiz.
It also condemned the attack and described those involved as hooligans.
The GJA in a statement issued on Sunday received information that “30 hooligans attacked the studios of the Accra-based private television station, and although the Police arrested some of them, others managed to escape.”
“The GJA also calls on the government, non-government organizations (NGOs), civil society organizations (CSOs), the diplomatic community, international agencies, and all well-meaning Ghanaians and people of good conscience to roundly condemn this barbaric act and the masterminds of the same,” it added.
