West Africa—The West Africa’s Council of Internal Chambers of Commerce boss, Nii Ayitey Aumle Oyanka has said although the actions of the dancehall musician Shatta Wale were ‘stupid and childish’ the security should not treat him like an armed robber.
“What Shatta Wale did was childish and stupid but what about the pastor who stated the crap? This nonsense must stop in Ghana,” he stated.
His comment follows the detention of the controversial musician and three other accomplices for a week for causing fear and panic.
Nii Ayitey Anumle Oyanka further urged the public to be measured in their condemnation since humans are fallible of making mistakes in life.
“One time you are a hero, the next time you are neglected and destroyed completely by your own people.”
Noo Oyanka in an interview said the case should be properly investigated and measure put in place to avoid any future occurrences.
Nii Oyanka chief of Obileieman who doubles as chairman of Anamase Royal Alline Council and Abola Piam stated, “I feel sad when I see or hear a situation like this. I have been a victim of such a similar incident, where you want to salvage a serious situation or defend yourself and at the end of the day, you rather become the victim of the show.”
He continued, “Last two years my place was attacked by gun-wielding men and people were shot and the palace vandalized. The criminals were never arrested and I was put behind bars for defending myself in my own palace.
“When I hear people praising the current IGP I laugh, this man doesn’t tolerate nonsense or accept bribes and served short terms in a few offices because they refused to be corrupted. Today people are praising him because he is just the IGP whether they like him or not.
“Dr. George Akuffo Dampare wants to prove his doubters wrong but in doing so he must be lenient with people. Nobody is perfect and the laws should work properly to ensure there is no selective justice.”
