Rawlings' not linked to incident at Adjiringano

Accra July 12, GNA - The Office of Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings, former President of Ghana, has noted with surprise reports on an Accra radio station stating that reporters from the Insight newspaper were attacked late Monday afternoon when they attempted to take photographs of the Adjiringano residence of the former First Couple.

"We wish to state categorically that no one within the residence has accosted any intruder or passer-by and any attempt to link persons in the residence to an alleged assault is a blatant lie and mischievous," a release to the GNA stated.


The release said the caretaker who was the only person within the premises has reported no incident whatsoever, and confirmed that he was unaware of any incident, taking place within the environs of the house. He has been within the premises performing his duties and has not ventured outside, the release said.
