New Patriotic Party Member of Parliament for Ayawaso Central, Henry Quartey, Thursday verbally assaulted an official of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly, over the latter and his team’s decision to embark on a demolition exercise in the area without his consent.
In a video posted online by Accra-based Journalist Israel Laryea, Quartey is seen cursing the AMA official, insisting he should have listened to him when he asked to talk to him on phone minutes after they got to his constituency.
Ignoring calls to ceasefire, he walked angrily towards the city official shouting “I will do it.
“I have been admitted at the hospital, i want to speak to you, and you said no. Who the hell are you. Come and face me.”
“You are my servant, the AMA official said.
“My servant my foot. F*ck you,” Quartey replied.
A tensed scene at Avenor, Alajo and adjoining areas, the demolition team returned Friday, which also saw Journalists asked to show their identity before being allowed to film.
Kasapafmonline.com’s photographer, Kofi Brobbey, had his camera seized for well over two hours, and was made to delete all the images he had taken. He was subsequently handed back the camera after he agreed to delete them.
