While attempting to render an explanation, the former Kotoko goalkeeper delivered a slap across Yeboah’s face.

“Owu approached me and asked why I always pass defamatory remarks about him, so I decided to reply him, but he slapped me.” Yeboah said to Metro FM.

“His palm is very big, coupled with the fact that he was in his hand gloves, so I really felt the pain. I have reported the matter to the police and I hope the right thing would be done to apprehend him.”

George Owu, who earlier said he had no knowledge of such an incident later admitted he confronted Kwame Yeboah to ask him some questions, but there were no case of assault as claimed by the journalist.

“I asked him why he usually plots negative things against me, but I didn’t assault him as he is claiming.” Owu said
