The Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) has condemned the alleged assault of two journalists in the line of duty by soldiers in separate incidents.

The first incident is said to have happened in the Greater Accra Region last Friday, April 10, and involved a TV Africa reporter, Samuel Adobah.

The second incident which occurred on April 5 in the Ashanti Region involved a correspondent of Deutsche Welle, Yussif Abdul Ganiyu.

A statement signed by the General Secretary of the GJA, Mr. Kofi Yeboah, described the assaults as “unprofessional, brutish, barbaric and a blot on the image of a military institution held in high esteem in peacekeeping operations across the world.”

The GJA is, therefore, urging the military authorities to “fish out the culprits for sanction.”

It also called on the Ghana Police Service to investigate the two cases and bring the culprits to face the full rigors of the law.
