The road contractor who was assaulted by Shatta Wale and his thugs has finally spoken about what actually happened ‘behind the scenes.’
Identified as Kennedy Acquah, the distraught man told Starr FM that he was discharging his duty with his team when the thugs ordered his workers to stop working because of a disagreement he had with Shatta Wale.
“He sent someone to us on Saturday to tell us to extend the road to his office but we told them the length of the road and areas covered are contractual matters and not decided by the site workers. We asked them to pick the matter up with Urban roads who are supervising the project,“ he said.
He further added; “we were working today when he (Shatta Wale) just drove past the roadblock sign and came through where we were working despite the fact that we had just laid the asphalt, and asked who was in charge, I went close to tell him I was in charge and before I could explain anything, one of the guys with him just slapped me and he was looking on. There were a number of guys on motorbikes with him”.
The incident was captured on video by people passing, the police came there but did nothing about the assault on me, and they rather exchanged pleasantries with him and told me to be careful”.
The engineer has indicated that he visited the hospital for treatment and will later file a formal complaint at the police station.
