GJA Urges Probe Into Death Threat Against Manasseh

Manasseh Azure Awuni.

The Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) has called for police investigation into alleged death threat against investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni.

A political fanatic is alleged to have threatened to kill Manasseh over an opinion piece he (Manasseh) authored on the outcomes of the December 7, 2020 general elections.

But GJA in a statement dated December 27, 2020, and signed by its General Secretary, Kofi Yeboah, condemned the death threat.

According to the GJA in the statement, the Ghana Police Service must investigate, arrest and prosecute the suspect as swiftly and decisively as possible.

“We also call on the police to provide adequate security to Manasseh and other journalists across the country who have similarly received death threats,” the statement noted.
