In a Facebook post by Felix Kwakye Ofosu, he writes whiles quizzing that:
"How is it tolerable for an MP or anybody else for that matter, to publicly call for the beating of a journalist because of reportage he made? How is the leadership of the NPP able to put up with this open misbehavior by Kennedy Agyapong? How can they be so non-chalant about this? How does he get to Chair the Defence and Interior Committee of Parliament with this kind of conduct. No standards are expected of leaders anymore?," he wrote.
Comments following his post have included the following:
Kwadwo Ofori-Atta writes "Felix Kwakye Ofosu, ask Stan Xoese Dogbe how was it tolerable for a Presidential Staffer so to speak to collect a journalist’s camera and smash it on the ground just because he did not want the said journalist to video something? Just think or ponder over this one too, if you’re done kindly come back here and let’s have conversation! Good day bro!"

K Pee Rich writes "You are doing your work as a #footsoldier but be circumspect. We are in this country when Sam George publicly declare that soldiers will be treated as criminals when seen in their demo, and your party were happy about that fatuous comment.

Nii Odoi Brown writes "My worry is what he said in connection with the president and I quote "if I were the president I will order for the beatings of that small boy Is Erastus " . No wonder the president has not said anything concrete about the Ahmed Suale issue"

Frank DreamOcean writes "When you're bereft of ideas to put forth your points, your last resort is physical abuse and death threats and this is man who hold an enviable record with such threats and the victims never lived to tell their story.

“This is my first time of hearing this matter. As it is now, I am compelled to refer to the Privileges Committee. It is a matter the Privileges Committee will have to go into and report to the House and it is for the House to decide whether the honourable Member is contentious of the House,” the Speaker said.
