Mr Bernard Antwi Boasiako, Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has parted with GH¢5,000 for embattled reporter with Kumasi-based Ashh Fm Daasebre Ajei Dwamena.
Chairman Wontumi who first placed a GH¢ 10,000 reward for any informant who will help find the sacked journalist dead or alive, has asked management of the station to keep the amount and share it among staff if they so desire.
The reporter was on Monday sacked on the orders of NPP firebrand and lawmaker for Assin Central Kennedy Ahyepong who is his employer for contradicting himself in a well staged disappearance claim.
According to him, relations accused him of killing the embattled news reporter for ritual purposes to smoothen the NPP’s victory at the December 7 polls.
This it is gathered was followed by attempts by the aggrieved family members to summon him before the occupant of the golden stool Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to answer the said charges.
An incensed Kennedy Agyepong said he was more worried that the family when news of the sudden disappearance of Daasebre Adjei Dwamena was reported indicating that he did everything in his capacity to ensure he could be found.
He said upon his return, the reasons he gave for his disappearance were untenable considering the emotional torture he subjected his family and colleagues at work to and therefore does not deserve to continue to work at Ashh Fm.
