The commercial driver and his mate who were seen in the viral video fighting a uniformed police officer have finally spoken.
The pair Francis Buaben, the driver and Albert Ansah have given a blow by blow account of how events unfolded on that day.
Speaking on Dwaso Nsem on Thursday, April 4, 2019, the driver told Osei Bonsu that the police officer accosted his vehicle on Thursday, March 14 and accused him of parking in the middle of the road.
He revealed that the Police officer tried removing the vehicle keys but he prevented him.
The action he said infuriated the policeman who mounted the vehicle from the passengers’ side and without any provocation started hitting him.
According to him, his mate who tried to intervene was also not spared the wrath of the policeman as he pounced on him too and gave him some severe beatings.
This he said angered them and they decided to fight back.
They are currently on a GHc 10,000 bail and will be appearing in court on April 15, 2019.
