Kennedy Acquah, the contractor who was allegedly assaulted by Shatta Wale and his team has referred to the dancehall artiste as lawless and ignorant.
On Monday, May 31, a section of the media reported that Wale and his team had attacked a contractor for not seeing to the quick construction of a road in Adjiringanor.
Speaking in a new interview, Acquah stated Shatta Wale has no knowledge about construction technicalities, hence his behaviour.
"It is so obvious that he is flawed in all his statements. He doesn't know the technicalities involved in asphalt overlay... He doesn't even know what he is talking about. He actually said it himself that he drove onto the asphalt. That's the level of lawlessness," Acquah said to Andy Dosty, host of DayBreak Hitz on Hitz FM on Tuesday, June 1, 2021.
"This was a physical assault. Assuming he was right. Does this warrant beating. What if I sustained injuries that can't be saved. Some deformity. Let's look at that. These are people working for our motherland. We put our lives at risk for the well-being of the country and the benefit of we (sic) all. Certain things shouldn't be allowed to fly in the name of who. No one is above the law," he added,
Acquah also denied a claim by Wale that his supervisor had apologised to him (Shatta), adding that his boss doesn't know who the artiste is.
