The engineer on site claimed that the artiste was angry that they did not extend the work on the road to his office.
In an interview with Hitz FM, he claimed that Shatta Wale sent some men on motorbikes to halt the work they were doing. The men subsequently assaulted him and some other workers.
Mr Acquah told Andy Dosty that he filed a complaint at the East Legon police station after visiting the hospital to treat the injuries he sustained following the attack on him.
“He sent someone to us on Saturday to tell us to extend the road to his office but we told them the length of the road and areas covered are contractual matters and not decided by the site workers. We asked them to pick the matter up with Urban roads who are supervising the project,” he told the media.
He explained further “We were working today when he (Shatta Wale) just drove past the roadblock sign and came through where we were working despite the fact that we had just laid the asphalt, and asked who was in charge, I went close to tell him I was in charge and before I could explain anything, one of the guys with him just slapped me and he was looking on.
“There were a number of guys on motorbikes with him. The incident was captured on video by people passing, the police came there but did nothing about the assault on me, they rather exchanged pleasantries with him and told me to be careful”.
Shatta Wale after being a bit controversial finally apologizes to the contractor and urged bloggers to also desist from posting fake news about the incident.
He insisted that he did not pay the contractors to work on the road leading to his office as many have reported.
The My Level hitmaker added;”I have not given anybody $4 million or ¢4 million. I just want us to live in peace and harmony, I thank everybody and anybody that I have hurt, I just want to say I am sorry.”
However, the media reveals that the divisional commander, Kwame Gyasi, at the East Legon police station has called for an investigation into the matter.
According to him, if Shatta Wale does not report to the police station as promised by his father Mr Charles Mensah Snr. the police will pick him up.
