Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Agyepong has said that the shocking death of the cameraman at Net2 TV was an act of God.

 

Agyepong narrated that when the explosion started, lights at Madina Zongo where Kencity media is located went out. He added that the workers were advised to stay in the office until the situation was calm.

 

“Honestly from the angle that it’s coming from, I don’t know whether destiny is the same as acts of God. Because I learnt that they were cautioned not to move out and stay calm but because of his love for the job, he went out to work which makes me think that he was destined to die that night.”
