- NPP activist who assaulted journalist has rendered an unqualified apology to the victim
- Hajia Fati went on her knees to apologised to the media in general for action
Embattled New Patriotic Party (NPP) activist, Hajia Fati has rendered an apology to the journalist she attacked and the Ghanaian journalists in general.
“I’m appealing to all press men. I’m on my knees begging you people. I don’t have any grudge with any press person. What happened was a mistake. So please you people should forgive me. Please, you people should forgive me,” the NPP firebrand broke down in tears at the party headquarters on Wednesday.
Hajia Fati admitted slapping the Adom FM newscaster Ohemaa Sakyiwaa Ahwenepa, at the party’s headquarters last week.
According to her, she assaulted the reporter because she failed to seek her consent before taking pictures of her.
“She was snapping [taking pictures of] me, I don’t know her, she didn’t approach me, she didn’t tell me anything. I only saw a flash on my face twice, the third time, I slapped her because I didn’t know who she was,” she said.
On her part, the assaulted journalist explained that Hajia Fati was infuriated at Mr Crabbe, for coming to the party's headquarters to pick nomination forms to contest in the upcoming elections.
Thus, in her bid to get an interview, the embittered Hajia Fati smashed the reporter's phone and punched her mouth, accusing her of working for Mr Crabbe.
Madam Fati is currently on a police enquiry bail.
