C/R: Radio station attacked, presenter beaten [Photos]

A local radio station in Elmina, Benya FM, in the Central Region, was attacked on Monday by unknown people.

The radio station was discussing matters of non-availability of premix fuel for the fishermen and how those who are not fishermen were given the product to the detriment of fishermen who need it for their fishing business.

According to eyewitnesses, in the middle of the discussion, some muscularly built men stormed the station, disrupted the discussion, pulled down some equipment, and beat up the presenter.
