A journalist with the Multimedia Group, Ato Kwamena Dadzie, claims to have filed a police complaint against the Member of Parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyapong.

Mr Dadzie, who is broadcaster with Accra-based Joy FM, said he filed the complaint after the MP accosted him in front of his office on Tuesday and threatened to deal with him.

“Just filed a police complaint against the MP for Assin North, Kennedy Agyapong. This morning he menacingly accosted me in front of Joy FM and threatened to slap, beat and "deal" with me if I don't watch the things I write about him," Mr Dadzie wrote on Facebook. "He violently shouted all manner of threats and expletives at me as he was restrained and led away by onlookers. It's one of those days when I feel very ashamed to be a Ghanaian because someone like Kennedy Agyapong, frankly, shouldn't be making laws for me."


A source told Graphic Online that if indeed Mr Agyapong threatened Mr Dadzie, then it may be related to a comment the Joy FM broadcaster posted on Facebook, which suggested that an unnamed MP in the Central Region was dealing in drugs.
