- Alfred Woyome has denied media reports that he was attacked
- His PRO that MR. Woyome was at the mall on Sunday and not Saturday as the report had indicated
- He added that people wanted to take shots with Woyome and not rather attack him
Businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome has noted that he was not attacked at the Achimota Mall last Saturday as earlier reports had indicated.
His denial to the report comes after the Daily Guide newspaper sought to inform the public that the businessman was attacked last Saturday at the mall.
According to the Daily Guide report: "There was drama at the Achimota Shopping Mall in Accra last Saturday when a man accousted businessman and National Democratic Congress (NDC) financier, Alfred Agbesi Woyome, for duping the state in the sum of GHc51.2 million."
Denying the media report, Reginald Seth Dogbey, PRO for Mr. Woyome noted to GhanaPoliticsonline.Com that Mr. Woyome was never at the mall on Saturday; but only passed through on Sunday after going to Achimota to greet a family member.
Setting the records straight, Seth Dodge narrated that Mr. Woyome was never attacked. He added that many people were trying to take pictures with Mr. Woyome. He continuous that a man who appeared little drunk also tried to take a picture with him.
He added that there was nothing like an attack, rather, the security men trying to prevent the drunken man from joining the picture taking section, but the man, apparently a loyal fan of Mr. Woyome, passionately insisted - an action which called for the police to carry him to the Mile 7 Police Station just to calm his passion down.
In a separate chat with the Crime Officer of Mile 7 police station, Mr. Henry Kuma Agbeve confirmed that it's true the drunkard's intention was not to attack Mr. Woyome but to take a picture with the business mogul just as any loyal fan does or will do to his or her role model.
GhanaPoliticsonline.Com caught up with Mr. Woyome, and he was appalled at how Daily Guide could report such falsehood about him. "If it's true that I was attacked, won't the police press charges against the one who attacked me?" Mr. Woyome asked rhetorically.
Readers are reminded that the Daily Guide publication reported that "the man, angered by Woyome's inability to refund the GHc51.2 million dubiously paid to him by the state, confronted the NDC financier and enquired when he was going to pay back the money."
The paper also claimed that this strange man was not even sure of whom he was allegedly attacking, but, "Immediately Mr. Woyome confirmed his identity, the gentleman pounced on him shouting, 'you are the one who spent our money. We will collect our money today,'" the source said.
