Mr. Agyepong has threatened to beat the journalist for his testimony at ongoing Justice George Kingsley Koomson-led Committee investigating Ejura killings.

In view of this, the group has petitioned the police CID to call him for questioning and has threatened to sue Mr. Agyepong for alleging that some Joy FM journalists took money from NPP bigwigs.

Meanwhile, renowned Conflicts Resolution Expert and United Nations Senior Mediation Advisor Emmanuel Habuka Bombande has condemned continues threats against media practitioners in Ghana describing it as absolutely unacceptable and has thrown an open invitation to rank and file of the governing NPP to call vociferous Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyepong to order for threatening Joy FM’s Erasmus Asare Donkor.

His comment follows public declaration by the firebrand Assin Central Member of Parliament Kennedy Agyepong that Joy News Journalist Erasmus Asare Donkor should be beaten for his testimony at ongoing Justice George Kingsley Koomson-led Committee tasked to probe unfortunate Ejura shootings.

Mr. Agyepong who is currently the Chairman of Defense and Interior Committee of Parliament said in video that has gone viral on social media that “If I were the president, I will let them beat the hell out of that Joy FM journalist because of what he went to say at the committee “.

In a sharp reaction to the development, the renowned Conflict Resolution Expert Emmanuel Bombande said “The police should provide security for him. But, threat against journalists is completely unacceptable”.

Bombande noted that “I don’t think Kennedy Agyepong has the temperament to be the Chair of Defense and Interior Committee of parliament “.

According to Bombande, environment for all journalists to work without fear must be persistent.

He noted that NPP should call Mr. Agyepong to order and let him issue unqualified apology to the media. Media doesn’t ask for favours to enable it work. It’s not in the interest of the NPP to allow somebody from their fold to continue to threaten the media”.
