The international body per a statement issued in Accra, expressed its “strong condemnation” of the killing through its Acting Resident Coordinator, Ms. Sylvia Lopez-Ekra.

“The United Nations in Ghana reiterates the message of the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres, on the occasion of the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists: “When journalists are targeted, societies as a whole pay a price .This should not become the new normal".
