A reporter with Accra based Top FM was on Saturday October 27, 2018, assaulted by a member of the newly created vigilante group, the Hawks.
The reporter who sustained serious injuries on his mouth was about interviewing the newly elected Deputy Youth Organizer, Edem Agbana when a fair coloured security guard, in the Hawks t-shirt prevented him from conducting the interview.
According to him, he requested to interview Edem Agabna but he told me to wait because he was interacting with some party supporters..
After his interaction, he walked to me for the interview to be conducted but during the interview, the member of the Hawks vigilante group, walked towards us and prevented me from conducting the interview.
'I asked why he was not allowing me conduct my interview and the next thing he did was to punch me in the face, he said.
The reporter says although he does not know the attacker, he would be able to recognize him.
He has expressed disappointment in the party for failing to deal with the matter, which occurred on Saturday at the Pentecost Convention Centre in Kasoa where the party held its women\’s and youth conference.
