Journalist shot at Ablekuma collation center
News of a shooting incident at the Ablekuma Central Collation Center which saw two journalists and a police officer on duty sustain various degrees of injuries was reported on December 8, 2020 by the Ghanaian media.
The two journalists, one of whom identified as Pius Asiedu, a journalist with the news portal, newswatchgh.com sustained a fractured leg after he was shot in the left leg by the suspect and the other, a GBC Radio reporter, Doreen Ampofo, got injured from a heavy fall while fleeing the scene.
The suspect was reported to have fired the gun shot over a misunderstanding which ensued between the two major parties, the National Democratic Congress(NDC) and the New Patriotic Party(NPP) over figures on the pink sheet at the coalition center.
Pius has since undergone a successful surgery at the Ridge Hospital in Accra.
