The police man who was captured being brutally assaulted by a trotro driver and his mate at Weija in the Greater Accra region has been narrating what actually triggered the free-for-all fight in which he was physically beaten.
According his narration, on Thursday March 14 2019 at Weija, the trotro driver stopped in the middle of road to wait for some passengers who were at the other side of the road.
His action caused a heavy traffic on the road and in the process, a motor bike ran into the rear of a private car. The police officer went there to help the situation. In the process the driver nearly hit him with the vehicle and sped off. He took an Okada, followed and crossed them.
He then requested that the driver turns for them to go to the station and that resulted in the attack on him by the driver and his mate.
After the confrontations, he sat in the vehicle and radioed control for assistance. The driver and his mate abandoned the vehicle and went away.
They managed to tow the vehicle to Odorkor police station. On Friday March 15, 2019, one Warrant Officer (WO) went to the police station and claimed ownership of the vehicle but the district commander told him to go and come later.
The matter is still under investigation, while the culprits, the driver and his mate are yet to be apprehended.
