Assertions by Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah that the attack on Convener of Free Media Vanguard, Prince Minkah may have been orchestrated has provoked angry reaction by a section of the public.
Prince Minkah has since been relocated from his house after unideitified attackers broke into his vehicle the night after the massive demonstration against the closure of radio stations. The case is currently under investigations by the Tema Community 18 Police.
Mr Nkrumah’s comment shocked many though he subsequently said there is the need for thorough investigations. Yesterday, many trolled the Information Minister on social media for being insensitive while others attacked his integrity sold for the comfort of politics and the goodies he is enjoying today after working closely with the media as host of a current affairs programme for years.
Convener for the group Prince Minkah, who is the victim has described the Minister’s comment as unfortunate but says that will not dampen their spirit.
