YEN.com.gh reported on Friday, August 4, that a bodyguard of President Nana Akufo-Addo had been caught in a video ‘punching’ the face of an ‘old man.’
In a 33-second video, the man, believed to be a sympathizer of Akufo-Addo is seen rushing toward the president’s official car as he shouts “Nana nie”, in a bid to shake the president’s hand.
But it was not to be as he was met with a heavy ‘punch’ from the president’s security guard that sent him to the ground.
The incident caught the attention of some onlookers who went to the aid of the man to help him get up.
Believed to be in his late 60s, the man had got a humiliation of his life and the worse if it all is that the action was captured on camera.
The viral video which occurred on one of the president's nationwide tour has generated a huge uproar among a section of Ghanaians on social media.
Many are those who have supported and justified the actions of the President’s bodyguard.
Ko Bi Sam saw nothing wrong with the bodyguard's action and even had some advice for the old man:
Qua Qu felt it was not wrong for the man to have walked to the president without permission:
Abdul Salam pointed out that the guard could not have watched unconcerned:
Grace felt it was the man who rather behaved disrespectfully o the president:
Sanchez stated that the man should have known better:
Others have, however, disagreed and condemned the actions of the bodyguard.
Lawrence described the action as unacceptable:
Agbesi wanted to know what would have happened if the man had died after the push:
Another one of the critics was Sekou Nkrumah, the son of Dr Kwame Nkrumah who suggested that the bodyguard should have stood in-between the president and the old man.
But one of his followers thought differently and dared him to try the same stunt when President Donald Trump comes by his neighbourhood in the United States.
