In an unexpected turn of events, the premises of Rejoice 101.7 FM in Mim Ahafo became the epicenter of political turbulence as the campaign team of Hon Evans Opoku Bobie, Deputy Minister of Youth & Sports, allegedly stormed the radio station to confront Nana Yaw Boadu, an aspiring Member of Parliament. The incident unfolded during the “Amansan Ntie” morning show, hosted by Yaw Omono Asamoah, and took an alarming twist when Hon Sandy Amankwaa, a newly elected assembly member for the Mim Airport/Asukese electoral area, reportedly pulled out a gun, leaving everyone in awe.
The clash, which occurred on the premises of Rejoice 101.7 FM, has sent shockwaves through the community and beyond, raising concerns about the state of political discourse and the potential for violence in the lead-up to the upcoming elections. The incident has drawn attention not only for its dramatic nature but also for the security implications it poses.
The campaign trail is often marked by heated exchanges and intense competition, but the resort to violence, especially within the confines of a radio station, is a cause for serious concern. Political figures are expected to engage in healthy debates and discussions, respecting the principles of democracy and the freedom of the press. The alleged storming of the radio station by Hon Evans Opoku Bobie’s campaign team ( Farouk, Sandy …) raises questions about the adherence to these democratic principles.
The involvement of Hon Sandy Amankwaa, who reportedly brandished a firearm in response to the escalating tensions, adds a dangerous dimension to the incident. The use of weapons in a political setting is unacceptable and goes against the spirit of peaceful democratic processes. The incident at Rejoice 101.7 FM serves as a stark reminder of the need for responsible and measured behavior from political actors.
Ohemaa Agyeiwaa, a radio DJ, Accountant & the host of the famous Matters of The Heart program was pushed to the wall by Farouk and is currently in discomfort in the process of trying to stop the fracas from escalating to the studio.
The famous Sports Host (Lord Eben) The Manager (Bless Carba) The News Editor (Abena Amankwaa) DJ Atoofi were not spared from the fracas.
