The Eastern regional Correspondent for Pro-NPP Newspaper Daily Guide, Daniel Bampoe was landed a dirty slap by the Kwame Appiah Kodua who is also the Eastern Regional Organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party, NPP.
The slap which sounds continued to echo saw the Journalist wobbled and nearly landed on the floor.
For a moment, the Journalist went blackout as a result of the slap but regained consciousness. He was confused and embarrassed hence started wandering and whining other Journalists.

The Eastern Regional Organizer who doubles as the Regional Director of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) Kwame Appiah Kodua spotted the Journalist, raged, and accosted him for allegedly recording the proceedings even though the Journalist denied it.
The Journalist explained that he entered to sit close to the entrance to seek shelter since it was raining heavily
Mr. Kodua who was not satisfied with the explanation ordered the party security to seize his mobile phones and throw him out.
He however, followed the Journalist to slap him despite knowing him personally as part of Journalists who have been covering events for the party in the region for a very long time.
The Eastern Regional Minister Seth Kwame Acheampong quickly rushed to the rescue of the Journalist, ordered that his mobile phones were given back to him.
The Minister described it as unfortunate and unreservedly apologized to the Journalist and assured him that he will handle the issue.
