News reaching YEN.com.gh indicates that two reporters working with Media General's subsidiary company, TV3, have been attacked by persons believed to be military men.
The reporters who have been named as Stanley Nii Blewu and Joseph Armstrong were attacked while on their normal reporting duties at the Tema Station in Accra.
Narrating the ordeal, Joseph Armstrong, who managed to escape without being noted, stated that his fellow journalist who had the camera was attacked by the soldiers. Stanley had his camera smashed by the soldiers and is currently in the custody of the men.
Speaking on TV3's Midday Live, Joseph Armstrong stated that one of the soldiers used his boots to hit the chest of Stanley, smashed his camera (which is possibly destroyed), and took his phone.
Yesterday, YEN.com.gh reported the Sanitation Minister saying Accra becoming the cleanest city in Africa had been achieved by 85 per cent. As a follow-up to the minister's comments, these two reporters set out to find out if places like circle and Makola were truly clean like the minister said.
Upon getting to the Tema Station enclave, there was an abnormal traffic holdup in the area which pushed them to inquire as to what had caused the road block. When they got to the station they were met by soldiers who attacked them even after they identified themselves as reporters
Joseph Armstrong stated that these soldiers did not have any form of identification or name tag imprinted on their uniforms like normal soldiers do.
In other news, information gathered by YEN.com.gh from an insider has it that Livingstone Etse Satekla, famed as Stonebwoy, engaged in a confrontation with Angel Town, Sarkodie's manager.
According to the reports coming in, Stonebwoy was attending a rehearsal for Sarkodie's upcoming Black Love project at Independence Square when the incident happened.
The story has it that upon Stonebwoy's arrival at the rehearsal grounds he wished to park at a lot reserved for state dignitaries but was stopped from doing so and made to park elsewhere. The same treatment was not applied to Shatta Wale, which is what allegedly inspired the altercation.
