Accra, Aug 31, GNA – The Management of the
Ghana News Agency (GNA) has expressed discomfort with the police’s handling of
investigations into the savage attack on the Agency’s Bawku Reporter, Jerry
Azanduna, by thugs said to have been hired by Mr. Hassan Ayariga, Founder of
the All People’s Congress (APC).

The Agency said it found it deeply disturbing that
four days after the brutal beatings that left the victim with cuts, bruises and
bloodshot eyes, not a single suspect had been arrested.

A statement signed by the Acting General Manager,
Mr. Kwaku Osei Bonsu, said the Agency was aware that the incident happened
right inside the house and in the full glare of the owner of the property – Mr.
Ayariga.

“We also know, that he has publicly admitted that
the people, who carried out the shameful criminal act, are members of his
party.”

It said the Agency was struggling to
understand why the police should not invite Mr. Ayariga to assist in their
investigations.

The statement said there could not be any
excuse to encourage anybody or group of people to see themselves as untouchable
– become emboldened to act with impunity and get away with that.

“Assuming without admitting that the GNA’s
story Mr. Ayariga finds so upsetting and irritating was wrong, the remedy certainly
is not to take the law into his own hands.”

“We are therefore calling on the Police Administration
to move quickly to arrest Mr. Azanduna’s attackers and bring them to justice”,
it added.
