NPP thugs storm UTV studios disrupting live broadcast

Some NPP thugs with hostile intentions invaded the studios of UTV on Saturday, October 7, 2023, abruptly halting the live broadcast of the weekly United Showbiz program. Their presence and agitated voices in the studio caused the production to come to a halt shortly after the host of the show MzGee's opener.

These individuals had barged into the studio with the apparent intention of confronting regular pundit Kwame Asare Obeng, alias A Plus who had in a previous episode strongly criticized the NPP, particularly for sending a letter seeking the program's reform.

He had criticized the content of the letter and questioned its propriety, describing it as "useless" and argued that such letters could harm the NPP's reputation and potentially undermine media independence, as protected by constitutional provisions.

In a chaotic scene inside the studio, the group of men raised their voices and chanted, calling out A Plus's name stating their intention to confront him, and demanded an explanation for his actions, specifically referring to tearing a paper related to the NPP.
