Some police officers at Assin Fosu in the Central Region are unhappy following the release of a song by one Ranking, which suggests they are under performing.
Disclosing the motivation behind the song, Ranking in an interview with Peace FM’s Sammy Kumah (Sammy Kay), said he was once stabbed with scissors by a young man in Assin Fosu.
The case was reported to the Assin Fosu district police but to his utmost surprise, the police asked him to “do personal arrest”, one week after the outfit had failed to arrest the suspect.
He consequently arrested the suspect and handed him over to the police and was eventually arraigned before the Assin Fosu District court for trial. The suspect was fined GHC 2900: Ghc900 for the court and Ghc2000 for the victim.
Ranking said the accused only paid GHC 900; the GHC 2000 which was to be given to him [Ranking] was never paid.
The situation triggered the Rastafarian to fire back through a song, titled “Court Bamboo”.
Meanwhile, the Assin Fosu divisional police commander who spoke to Peace News reporter, Oscar Adawu Dadzie off record said he will invite Ranking for further investigation.
The Assin Fosu court registrar, Abubakar Sadique told journalists, the accused could not pay the Ghc2000 court fine to the plaintiff after paying the Ghc900 because the accused is a student and does not have the means.
He added that, he has to liquidate a property to defray the Ghc2000 fine.
