Private legal practitioner, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw who wants dancehall artiste Shatta Wale to be dealt with severely by Ghana Police for his orchestrated gun attack, made a quick U-turn when NEAT FM’s morning show host, Kwesi Aboagye read a statement from the controversial artiste.
According to Shatta Wale, his "life is threatened" after a death prophecy. That prophecy by Bishop Stephen Akwasi aka Jesus Ahoufe, according to Shatta Wale, "has gotten me in a mood of violence since no one in this country cares."
The news went viral on late Monday night that the musician had been shot by some unknown gunmen at East Legon, Accra.
Without any pictures of videos from the alleged attack – the story elicited mixed reactions from the public as some doubted while others expressed sympathy.
The police were compelled to release a statement saying it had “launched an investigation into the matter including making contacts with some of his close friends and family members and all of them claim not to have knowledge of his whereabout or the alleged incident.”
“A team has visited the house of Shatta Wale and he cannot be found there. Over the last few hours, the Police have searched and continue to look for Shatta Wale at hospitals in Accra,” the statement added.
But Shatta Wale early Tuesday Morning released a statement from his hideout to explain the ‘expensive’ prank.
Lawyer Maurice Ampaw after hearing the content of Shatta Wale’s statement said, “Wow, let me clap for him, his level of intelligence”.
“Shatta’s security should be important. His statement is a signal to the country. The police must not wait for things to happen, they must act before,” he said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’.
