- Ernest Opoku has made a formal complaint to the police following his beating saga
- The gospel musician was caned by Nayas during a live worship session on Adom FM
- Ernest Opoku had been accused of sleeping with and jilting actress Nayas
Gospel musician Ernest Opoku and the host of Adom FM's live worship, Kwamena Idan, have filed a formal complaint against Kumawood actress Nayas with the Nima Police after he received some ‘crazy’ beatings in the Accra-based radio station.
The two men filed the complaint after the actress known in real life as Gladys Mensah, stormed the station to attack the gospel musician while he was on a live show worshiping God with listeners.
On May 14, a furious Nayas, who is alleged to have been intimately involved with the gospel act, stormed the station with a cane hidden in her dress and attacked the musician over comments the musician made about their alleged escapades.
As the musician was in the spirit with his hands lifted and singing songs of worship to God, he was attacked with a cane by the actress, leading to the show being taken off air immediately.
Ernest Opoku and Kwamena Idan filed the complaint on Monday, a few hours after the incident, and the police have commenced investigations into the issue.
A police investigator visited the offices of Adom FM to examine the scene of the alleged attack and also gather evidence.
According to Myjoyonline.com, the police have taken the statements of the gospel musician and the presenter and are set to invite the actress for questioning over the incident.
The statements of some eyewitnesses who were also present at the station and saw the whole show have also been taken pending further action.
Ernest Opoku had admitted in a previous interview of making a mistake by having an affair with the actress which resulted in a pregnancy.
“Mistakes are committed by human beings. I am not an angel. The Bible says the righteous shall fall seven times but God shall lift him up. Pray for me so that God continues to lift me up. The fact that I have made a mistake does not mean the Lord has forsaken me,” he pleaded in a recent interview after the matter went viral.
Nayas, born Gladys Mensah Boaku, who was clearly not amused by the gospel musician’s comments stormed the station's premises on Monday to exact revenge.
There were earlier reports that the musician offered the actress GHc 5,000 and 15 pieces of cloth as ‘bribe’ to abort the baby.
