Mr. Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafo, Chairman of the National Media Commission (NMC) has denied all claims that the killing of a 10-year-old boy in Kasoa was influenced by spiritualists on national television.
According to him, relating the sudden killing of the 10-year-old kasoa boy’s death to the increase in the number of spiritualists on national television is the lazy man’s submission of investigation.
“To put it on a charge sheet that this is the reason why they did that, I think that this is a very lazy investigation,” he told Joy News.
But according to the boys through an interrogation by the police, they revealed that their spiritualist was discovered live on television and he promised to make them a billionaire after they bring a human being and a sum of ¢5,000.
After the unpleasant incident, most netizens have added their voice through a newly launched campaign on social media #StopMoneyRitualsOnTv which aims at getting rid of spiritualists from speaking on live television.
The chairman of Chairman of the National Media Commission (NMC) also said “We should bemoan some of the things that we see on our television and all that. But to impute that a heinous crime as this merely to the fact that somebody watched television, I think that it is too farfetched.”
Mr. Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafo admitted that even though he plays an important role in the shielding of content in the television space, the commission still remains crippled until a broadcasting bill is passed.
