The Ashanti Regional Police Command has mounted a man-hunt for Baffour Gyan, brother of Ghana Black Stars? skipper, Asamoah Gyan for allegedly leading thugs to assault a journalist at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi, on Friday.
Daniel Kenu, the Ashanti Regional Editor of the Graphic Communications Group Limited, was subjected to severe beatings by the thugs and had to receive treatment at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
?Nobody is above the law and we will work around the clock to bring the culprits to book?, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Kofi Boakye told newsmen in Kumasi.
The GNA Sport gathered that the assault was triggered by a question posed earlier on by the victim at a press conference in which he sought explanation from the Ghanaian skipper about the recent disappearance of hip-life musician, Theophilus Tagoe (Castro).
DCOP Boakye said the police was treating the issue with all the seriousness it deserves.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Journalist Association (GJA) has issued a statement, condemning the assault in no uncertain terms.
The Editor who was exiting the VIP stands following the issuance of his accreditation to cover Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nation’s qualifier between Ghana and Uganda was met by Gyan and his thugs at the entrance of the stand.
Gyan attacked first while allegedly questioning Kenu on a supposed question the later asked the Ghana captain concerning the disappearance of Hip-Life artist Theophilus Tagie (Castro).
Gyan’s accomplices soon joined the attack even before the Editor could utter a word, subjecting him into some beatings.
