- Joy FM journalist, Kojo Yankson in a live TV report blamed a 'khebab' seller for causing the deadly explosion
- The journalist's 'khebab theory' has outraged many Ghanaians including Kwame A-Plus
Controversial Ghanaian musician, Kwame Asare Obeng better known as A Plus has rubbished a live report carried out by Joy FM’s Kojo Yankson on the deadly Atomic junction gas explosion on Saturday.
The Multimedia journalist who was reporting live from the site of the explosion told dozens of television viewers that the activity of a khebab seller caused the gas explosion.
The Joy FM broadcaster who blamed the khebab seller in his live report appears to have found himself in the bad books of many Ghanaians.
The journalist’s account on live television has been mocked by many Ghanaians on various social media platforms.
Critics who were not happy with his report have lashed out at the broadcaster describing his conduct as “infantile” and “unprofessional”.
After hours of receiving bashing and condemnation on social media, Kojo Yankson appears to be defending his blow-by-blow account.
The media practitioner in a defense took to his Facebook page today to hit back at his critics over the report.
However, musician A Plus in a fresh Facebook post has opened more fire on the journalist, asking him to admit the blunder.
"A man who according to your presentation was filming more than 10 meters away died instantly from the blast but the chichinga man who you claim started the fire 10 meters is alive and his chichinga stand is where you claim the fire started is very intact,” A Plus posted on his Facebook wall.
The controversial singer added that, “So after starting the fire, when the whole place was burning he looked for stones to nicely cover his chichinga stand and went home to Sleep?!!! Thank you very much for the news Mr Ab?i...!!!".
Meanwhile, the Ghana National Fire Service has dismissed Kojo Yankson's report insisting there are several factors that might have contributed to the deadly explosion.
