The victim, Isaac Nsiah Foster took to his heels as he was being pursued by construction workers with life-threatening objects led by the owner of fuel filling station under construction in the area.
According to reports, the journalist was at the site to investigate the illegal sighting of the fuel station following continual complaints from the residents near to the station.
In an interview on Adom News, Isaac said the owner of the fuel station whose name was given as John Appiah approached him and asked him to identify himself or he would be killed.
After he made his identity known, he ordered laborers at the site to deal with him claiming he was a criminal and an intruder.
But for the intervention of some commercial drivers in the vicinity, Isaac said would have been lynched.
He has since reported the incident to the police who have promised to investigate the matter.
