Just when we think the assault on civilians by men and women in uniform has become a thing of the past, a police officer at Kasoa is seen in a video sighted by GhanaWeb attacking the comedian cum actor Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng also known as Funny Face.
According to the actor, whilst he was shooting his new TV series dubbed Kasoa Trotro which is aimed at educating the general public on sanitation and road safety issues, a police officer in uniform decided to physically attack him on set.
He said the officer ordered him to stop filming because people are shouting his name.
Funny Face took to his Instagram page to write “God bless all good police men and women….When we are doin our best to Educate Ghanaians on sanitation and road safety through my new tv series #KasoaTrotro……for no reason dis police u see in da video…..and listen to how people were hooting at him……somebody says “saaa ofri wei koraa de3n na 3ha no “he decided to embarrass me..…..a man says he heard him saying “m3gu na nim asi“ really…..Brother, u can’t disgrace me oo………seee how everybody was shaming u!
