The camera immediately went blur and the lens had slightly moved with the internal configurations showing.
The incident was later reported to the CEO of the club who arrived later at the scene.
The CEO apologized for the insensitive treatment meted out to the media by Nana Kwame Dankwa and has also promised to find a solution to the damages camera of Ghanaweb.
