Mr Monney who doubles as the Director of Radio at GBC told Joy FM’s Manasseh Azure that Mr Dogbe has admitted destroying the recorder and has agreed to replace it.

“According to Yahaya’s report, Stan Dogbe was in the company of the communications minister and they were strategizing to announce the death of Nuamah to the family so it wasn’t for media consumption. But Yahaya, a very good journalist as he is picked something from what was being said. But when his attention was drawn to the fact that it was something private, he walked away and as he was walking away, Stan Dogbe chased him, seized his recorder and smashed it,” he said.
