A journalist at Goaso-based Success FM who doubles as a local correspondent for Peace FM in Accra has been shot dead at Kwapong, near Sankore.
According to local sources, King George Abanga was killed by unidentified assailants suspected to be armed robbers whilst following up on a story on the controversies surrounding the use of fertilizers by cocoa farmers in the area.
He was said to have been shot at close range but the police are yet to establish whether his killing was linked to the story he was investigating.
Kwapong was in the news some three weeks ago when the youth of the town besieged the local police station to avenge the death of a young man who had been stabbed to death by a fetish priest whilst testing the powers of his ‘Juju’.
The police later arrested the key suspect in the clashes which resulted in the death of 3 people.
