A group of young men on Wednesday attacked journalist James Karimu of Prime FM Radio on allegation that he was secretly recording their conversation.
Journalist Karimu speaking to Farbric News by telephone said the men attacked him on the Capitol By-Pass, where he had gone to a barbing salon to cut his hair.
Karimu alleged that his attackers were loyalists of the main opposition Coalition for Democratic Change or CDC.
The Prime FM reporter sustained severe body injuries during the attack.
Farbric News has not independently verified his claim.
Meanwhile, Police in Monrovia are in search of the alleged assailants, who are said to be on the run after the incident.
