Attack on Radio Ada; Don’t Point Accusing Fingers At Us

The company contracted to mine salt in the Songor Lagoon, has distanced itself from the attack on Radio Ada, by bully boys that has forced the local radio station to go off the air.

Thugs numbering about 10, one of them, reportedly carried a pistol, forced their way into the radio station to beat up a presenter and vandalized broadcast equipment.

Management of the radio station believes that the attackers have been hired by people upset by the media spotlight the station has put on the Songor Lagoon.

Electrochem Ghana Limited, the company contracted to mine salt in the Lagoon, however, says, it has absolutely nothing doing with the incident.

Henking Adjase-Kodjo, the Corporate Communications and Public Relations Manager of the Company, said they had no hand in what happened.

The company was not having any problems with the people and there was ringing support for the project to bring the Lagoon back to life. “We were not directly associated with the disturbance.

This is a mere accusation by some unknown persons. The attack on the radio station is rather unfortunate. We have no direct or indirect link with the incident.”

A statement issued by the management said they would be shutting down for few days, beginning today, January 14, 2022.

This is to enable them to review things and to fix the damage caused to their on-air studio equipment.

The statement read; “The attackers, one of whom was armed with a pistol, invaded the on-air studio by forcibly destroying its door. They beat up the presenter and vandalized the on-air studio equipment, leading to the temporary shut-down of Radio Ada.

The attackers openly declared that they had come to vandalize the station because of its Manor Munyu and other programmes discussing the recent developments in Songor.

They threatened to inflict further havoc should the station continue with programmes on Songor.”
