The Ghana Police Service have indicated that firing a gun in public without lawful and necessary reasons is an offence.
Therefore, the Service is set to begin investigations into a video making the rounds on social media in which Shatta Wale is captured firing a gun in public.
This stance of the Police was disclosed by the Public Affairs Director of the Ghana Police, ACP David Eklu, according to a Hitz FM report.
ACP David Eklu in an interview on Hitz FM disclosed that the dancehall king’s action in the video could amount to an offence.
However, the Police would conduct further investigations so as to unravel all facts and circumstances surrounding the video, ACP Eklu said.
According to him, the Police are in possession of the video.
He explained that further investigation is necessary because the video could have been doctored to create an impression.
“We will have to carefully examine the video since for all we know, it could have been tailored to create an impression,” The Police Public Relations Officer said.
The self-acclaimed Ghana’s ‘Dancehall King’ went live on Facebook, firing gun shots.
As he fired the shots, he kept mentioning names of some Nigerian artistes whom he has been 'fighting' for some reasons.
Charles Nii Amarh Mensah, as Shatta Wale is known in private life, mentioned Wizkid; Patoranking; and Timaya while firing the gun shots.
Some media personalities, Bola Ray and Kwame Sefa Kayi have condemned Shatta Wale’s act.
Collegue musician, Tic Tac also called on the Ghana Police Service to do the right thing by arresting the ‘Kakai’ hit maker.
