NPP apologises to UTV, distances itself from studio invasion

According to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), neither it nor any of its members were involved in the assault of UTV studios.

These people showed up in the studio to interrupt a live broadcast in response to remarks made by one of the panelists.

16 people who are reportedly connected to the event have already been detained by police.

In an interview with Citi News, the NPP’s director of communications, Richard Ahiagbah, stated that the party will work with the police to guarantee that those guilty are brought to justice.

“The party did not sanction anyone to go and disrupt the United Showbiz programme as was reported. We have moved swiftly to make an apology to them [UTV], and we are going to cooperate with the police to investigate the matter. We think that the attack is unacceptable, and it’s condemnable,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) has condemned the attack and called on the Ghana Police Service (GPS) to prosecute the attackers.

The GJA in a statement issued on Sunday said it was informed that about “30 hooligans attacked the studios of the Accra-based private television station, and although the Police arrested some of them, others managed to escape.”
