A journalist was ostensibly assaulted by some police officers at Stonebwoy’s Bhim Concert last on Friday.
Samuel Kumah, known in showbiz rings as Sammy Kay, was allegedly videoing footballer, Asamoah Gyan and television personality, Efia Odo, when a police officer asked him to stop and delete the video, but he declined explaining he has a good relationship with the footballer.
The police officer, with his colleagues is alleged to have proceeded to attack Sammy Kay, leading to a scuffle which got Sammy injured. He was rushed to the emergency ward at the 37 Military Hospital in Accra.
Meanwhile a statement from the Art and Tourism Writers Association of Ghana (ATWAG) condemned the alleged brutality against the journalist and the association “is taking steps to liaise with the employers of Sammy Kay (the Despite Group of Companies) to see how best to handle the matter”.
According to ATWAG, the attack on Sammy was unprovoked as he was doing his work rightfully.
The association also observed reports of police officers brutalizing citizens in their line of duty in recent times have become rampant and therefore calling on the government and the Inspector General of Police to bring an end to it.
