“TPF is saddened by the sudden disappearance of Kumasi-based Ash Fm journalist, Daasebre Ajei Dwamena. We are also shocked at the lackadaisical attitude of the security agencies towards finding him, dead or alive. It’s been almost one month since Daasebre disappeared after casting his ballot at Akyremade in the Bekwai constituency of the Ashanti Region of Ghana on Wednesday, 7th December, 2016.

The Executive Director of the TPF visited and interacted with the family of Daasebre last week. It was clear that, they have no clue whatsoever about the whereabouts of Daasebre, as all they hinged on was hope that he is found. The Press Foundation, will by this release want to state that, the silence of the security on the search, up till now is too deafening”

To this end, it called on all media institutions to get involved in the fight for the search of Daasebre as a commitment to journalism.
