The Police Service in Assin Fosu in the Central Region are up in arms against a ‘Rastaman’ who in his latest song has branded them as corrupt.
The Rasta musician, Kofi Owusu in the lyrics of his song sought to suggest that the Police and the Judicial Service are not living up to expectations.
According to the musician, he was stabbed with a pair of scissors by a young man in Assin Fosu where the case was reported to the police station.
However, he was asked by the Police Command to do personal arrest, one week after the Police had failed to arrest the suspect.
The Rastaman in an interaction with Adom FM said, he personally arrested, the suspect and handed him over to the police where he was eventually processed to the Assin Fosu District court for trial.
He added that the suspect was fined GHc900 to the court and GHc2000 to the victim.
But the musician claims the suspect was forced to pay the court fine of GHc900 but the GHc 2000 which was supposed to be paid to the complainant had not been paid ever since the court trial ended.
The worrying situation triggered the ‘Rastafarian’ to fire back at the police and the court through a song, titled “Court Bamboo”.
Meanwhile, the Assin Fosu divisional police commander who spoke to Adom News’s Alfred Amoh off record, said he will invite the rastafarian, Kofi Owusu for further investigation.
On his side, the Assin Fosu court registrar, Abubakar Sadique, who also explained their side of the story said, the accused couldn’t pay the GHc2000 court fine to the complainant after paying the GHc900 due court because, he is a student.
Mr Sadique added that the court is yet to liquidate suspect's property to offset the outstanding fine.
