SWAG Condemns Attacks On Female Photojournalist In Accra

The Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) has condemned attacks on journalists by fans at Ghana Premier League centers this past weekend.

A statement from the secretariat of the Association described the latest attack on photojournalist Miss Senyuidzorm Adadevor, by fans of Accra Great Olympics during the fifth week league match as barbaric and irresponsible.

Senyuiedzorm Awusi Adadevor was prevented by Great Olympics from taking photos at Accra Sports Stadium as a result of publishing the photo of Bechem United coach Vincenzo Anesse being hit by a missile from Olympics fans.

“What is more worrying is the attack was supervised by a management member of the club, Mr Olloboi Commodore, who supported the act of the fans calling for the sack of the journalist, from the inner perimeter of the Stadium,” the statement read.
