The Editor of the Exclusive Newspaper, David Jabati was severely beaten up by irate youths allegedly supporting the APC on Friday with his money and two mobile phones stolen.
Jabati and a reporter from the Awoko Newspaper Ishmael Bayoh were covering the incident between the SLPP and the APC when they ran into the irate APC youths at Howe Street.
The two journalists were curious to watch the scene and when they were returning after they were blocked by the Police at SLENA, they were attacked by the youths calling them SLPP supporters.
Before the two journalists could identify themselves as journalist and not party supporters, they were already about to be lynched.
The Awoko reporter was lucky that the group that caught him could read his ID card but the group that was with Jabati, despite him identifying himself; they ran for his pockets taking his two phones, Le175,000 and $200. Jabati’s Jeans trousers was also torn and the group was making way to the Awoko reporter but he made good use of his legs.
