As per the GJA, a police officer riding on an unregistered motorbike hit a vehicle having a place with the Ghanaian Time close Kinbu Traffic Light in Accra around 8.45am and hurried off.
‘The Police Officer had supposedly hopped traffic and keeping in mind that wandering out, his motorbike hit the guard of a Nissan cantina vehicle having a place with the Ghanaian Time, breaking the mirror and windscreen of the vehicle simultaneously. His pillion rider who saw what had happened enticed him to stop yet the police officer rode on. The driver of the Ghanaian Times vehicle at that point pursued and figured out how to obstruct the motorbike of the police officer a couple of meters from the mishap scene, whereupon Malik got off the vehicle and began video-recording the occurrence with his cell phone. Infuriated by that activity, the police officer endeavored to grab the cell phone from the columnist and when he didn’t succeed, he supposedly punched the essence of the correspondent, as blood spouted out from his nose. Other police officers and a trooper in uniform purportedly participated in the beating of the columnist, pushing, kicking, slapping and punching him.’
