The contractor who was allegedly beaten by Shatta Wale’s boys at Nima has finally spoken.
It was in the news a while ago that Shatta Wale out of anger and frustration has urged his boys to deal with a contractor who he paid ¢4M to construct a road but failed to.
Well, after the news went viral, the contractor has spoken saying the dancehall artist approached and told him to extend the road to his office.
The contractor, identified as Kennedy continued that after Shatta Wale’s request, he told him to see the Urban roads for permission since he has no right to grant his request.
However, Shatta Wale read a different meaning into his assertion and pounced on him with his men at the site.
He detailed how one of Shatta Wale’s boys slapped him and also ordered them to lay down their tools.
“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.
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”, the engineer disclosed.
The engineer also indicated that he visited the hospital for treatment and will later file a formal complaint at the police station.
