Unknown persons have stormed the residence of the Starr FM reporter Edward Adeti three days after his investigation forced a minister of state, Rockson Ayine Bukari, to resign.
The attackers took away a TV set in the sitting room after breaking a burglary proof on one of the windows.
The development comes after two people had gone on a local radio station in Bolgatanga to, as some observers put it, incite some residents against Adeti after the former Upper East regional minister’s resignation. The two persons took to the air this week to describe the investigation as an act of betrayal.
The wife of the reporter, Daily Mail GH understands, has reported to the police.
“Perhaps, they are searching for evidence on the investigation,” Adeti, who is currently in Accra, told Starr FM.
Bukari resigned over an attempt to bribe Mr. Adeti to kill an investigative story about a Chinese mining company, Shaanxi Mining Ghana Limited, and the most senior judge in the Upper East region, Justice Jacob B. Boon.
Daily Mail GH last week leaked a telephone conversation implicating Mr. Bukari in a coordinated plan by people in high places to drop an undercover report carried out by the Starr FM journalist.
He admitted in his resignation letter that he was “indiscreet”.
“I do this as a matter of principle having been indiscreet and exercised judgment contrary to what I have known you to stand for and require of your servants in running this country. I sincerely regret any inconvenience my act of indiscretion might have caused,” Bukari stated in his letter, a copy of which is in the possession of Daily Mail GH.
“I wish to express my sincerest appreciation to you for the confidence reposed in me, and take this opportunity to assure you of my loyalty, and unflinching support to you and the government,” he concluded in his letter.
