Police detain woman for filming Shatta Wale ‘resisting arrest’

A woman who was believed to have filmed an exchange between the Police and Dancehall Artiste, Shatta Wale has been arrested.

The star had been stopped by the cops for driving an unregistered Benz Jeep in Accra.

In the video, Shatta Wale can be seen in a heated exchange of words with the police officer before returning to his vehicle and driving off.

An eyewitness, Agbeko Kumordzi told Citi News that the officer had asked the musician to follow him to the police station after he stopped the unregistered vehicle.

However, in a fit of rage, Wale reportedly hurled abuse at the officer and sped off.

Quite predictably, a number of people gathered at the scene to witness the incident, with at least one person capturing the entire exchange on their phone.

However this landed one of the onlookers in a bit of bother as police later detained a woman they suspected had shot the video, which has since gone viral on social media.

“There was somebody in the shop videoing what was happening. The person making the video was fixated on Shatta Wale and not even the unregistered jeep that caused all this commotion. The police came back the following day to arrest the lady they claimed took the video,” the eyewitness said

She was reportedly kept in custody for a number of hours before the police determined that she couldn’t have taken the video, as she can be seen in it, and released her.
