Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM has been asked to shutdown by the Kumasi Traditional Council following an interview on the network by controversial politician Odike.
The order was handed down to the management of the station after they had gone to the Manhyia palace to apologise for comments by the politician in the interview days ago.
The Chiefs are angered by claims by Odike that they are behind illegal mining in the Ashanti region.
The Acting President of the council, Baffour Asare Owusu Amankwatia VI, said if the management were really sorry for the comments made they should close down the station from Friday August 26, 2022 until the issue is resolved.
“we are demanding that the media house will render an unqualified apology to us. We want them to use the appropriate channel in doing so. Also, the media house should temporarily halt its operations until the pending issues are resolved.”
