A journalist who strings for Accra-based Peace FM King George has been shot dead by suspected armed robbers.

His remains have been deposited at the morgue pending autopsy. Management of Success FM confirmed the incident to Starrfmonline.com.

The General Manager of Success FM Asafo Agyei said: "The crime officer told us there was a cocoa purchasing clerk who went to withdraw money and robbers were trailing him… my reporter was coming from Kwapong on a motor bike and when they saw him they thought it was the clerk and shot him at close range."
