Shatta Wale has denied beating up any construction Worker or instructing any of his “boys” to do same.
News flooded social media on Monday, 31 May 2021 of the alleged assault a road contractor and his workers at Adjirigano, Accra, by the dancehall artiste and his squad.
An official report of the alleged assault was also lodged with the East Legon District Police Command.
Wale allegedly go incensed and thronged the construction site with is army of boys to dish it out to the construction workers after they refused to extend the project to cover the untarred front road of his office.
He told Accra-based Hitz FM in an interview that: “On Friday, I went to my office and I realised that there was some construction works on the junction leading to my office”.
“So, I asked them who their boss was and I inquired from him why they didn’t inform us about the roadblock despite the years of uncompleted road works”.
“The following Monday, I was going to my office again, and I realised that this time around, they had blocked the main road to the office.”
“I got out of my car and asked who was in charge because they were putting bitumen on the already-tarred road but some workers said I should not be given attention”, he explained.
“But I insisted that I am a citizen and I need to see who was in charge”.
“So, I asked them to stop work so that I see the contractor”, Shatta Wale further explained.
“If some of them proved stubborn and they were pushed by my boys, it wasn’t me because I never asked anyone to beat the workers.”
