NPP’s Hajia Fati ‘punches’ Adom FM Journalist

Adom FM journalist, Ohemaa Sakyiwaa Ahwenepa was on Friday assaulted by popular NPP supporter Hajia Fati at the party headquarters.

Haji Fati allegedly punched the lips of the radio presenter for attempting to take a shot of her.

Narrating the incident, Sakyiwaa said the assault happened after Hajia Fati tried to deny the suspended Second Vice Chairman of the party, Sammy Crabbe to pick up a form to contest for the Chairmanship position.

“Hajia Fati came in after Sammy Crabbe had been asked to go and bring money. Actually, he came with a banker’s draft from the Ghana Commercial Bank, and he was asked to go and bring cash because they were taking cash.

“About 15 minutes after Sammy Crabbe left, Hajia Fati came in very angry and she was saying that she will not allow Sammy Crabbe to pick the [nomination] forms.

“I got closer to her. I wanted to interview her so I took my phone out. I wanted to take a picture and so as soon as she turned, she looked at my face and asked me why I was taking pictures of her. I didn’t utter a word. She punched my mouth, and she almost took the phone from me,” she narrated.

Hajia Fati has been in the news on several occasions for her threats to journalists who report negatively about the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
