A group of armed supporters of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Techiman, a town in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana on May 28, 2009
besieged the premises of privately-owned Classic FM physically attacked
three persons and vandalised the station.

Kofi Doe Lawson, a producer, Michael Amankwah, marketing manager of the station and a food vendor were violently attacked by the angry supporters wielding machetes. Amankwah was hospitalised, treated and later discharged.

Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA)'s correspondent reported that the
attack was as a result of an alleged voice recording of Simon Addai, a member of parliament (MP) of Techiman South constituency, who during a meeting with NDC members allegedly threatened to 'deal' with some members of the opposition, including prosecuting his immediate predecessor, for an acts of corruption.

The correspondent said but for the vigilance of the station security, the youth, who destroyed the entrance of the station would have also vandalised the studio. It took the intervention of the patrol team of military and police to bring the situation under control.

When MFWA contacted the MP, he denied making the statements attributed to him by the station. He accused the station of bias and unprofessionalism. The MP said the attack had not been officially reported to him.
