Police arrest Lebanese captured in viral video threatening to slaughter Ghanaian man

“The suspect is in police custody and will be taken through the due process of the law,” the statement said in part.

It added that “before the arrest, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, reached out to the victim yesterday, Tuesday, April 13, 2022, via a telephone call and he seemed traumatised by the incident.”

“As a result, upon the IGP’s instruction, the victim has been given psychological support by a clinical psychologist from the Police Hospital. The IGP also followed up with a personal visit to the victim today, Wednesday, 13th April, 2022.”

Before Brustani‘s arrest, the Lebanese embassy in Accra had entreated the police to arrest and deal with him according to the laws of the land, saying it does not condone any actions by Lebanese citizens that violate the laws of their host countries.

“We reject all forms of violence and intimidation, as well as anyone who does not treat the people of the host country with respect and in accordance with applicable laws,” the Lebanese embassy wrote on Facebook.

A 14-second long video making the rounds on social media in the past few days shows the tall, giant, and bearded Brustani, wielding two cutlasses. He is heard yelling at a Ghanaian identified as Iddrisu Yusif, daring him to draw near him, amidst threats of slitting his throat.

The incident did not sit well with many Ghanaians, and they called on the Ghana Police Service to track Brustani and arrest him. In their view, it is utterly wrong for a foreign national to have the audacity to threaten a Ghanaian in his own country with death and go scot-free.

Since a page of the will was leaked on social media, the late Chief Executive Officer of the Forestry Commission has been trending.

This is because he bequeathed portions of the Achimota Forest, which has also been in the news to some of his family members.

After news broke about the decision by the late politician to will some state properties to his relatives, investigative journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni dug deeper to find the full details of the will.

On page 4 of the will, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, whose office was situated at the Achimota Forest until his death, states:

“I give my land situate at the Achimota Forest in the name of Jakaypro Limited and measuring 5.541 acres to the following persons forever.

  • Yaw Amoateng Afriyie                               One (1) acre
  • Eva Akua Afriyie                                         One (1) acre
  • Ivy Akua Afriyie                                           One (1) acre
  • Elizabeth Asare Boateng (aka Mother)  One (1) acre
  • Michael Owusu                                           1.541 acres

On page 5 of the will, it is stated: “I give my land also situate at the Achimota Forest in the name of Fasoh Limited and measuring 0.987acres to my nephews Michael Owusu, Yaw Boadu and Kwabena Amoateng forever.”

On the same page, the will states: “I jointly own a piece of land at Achimota Forest with Charles Owusu. Upon my demise, my portion of the said land should be given to Ruth Korkor Odonkor.”

That’s not all. On the same page 5 and still on the Achimota Forest, the will states: “I give my portion of land that jointly own at the Achimota Forest in the name of DML Limited to Elizabeth Asare Boateng who at the time of making this will is domiciled in the USA forever.”

The former head of the forestry commission also stated in the will that he owned land at the Ramsar area in Sakumono in Accra.

“I give my land situate at the Ramsar area at Sakumono in the Greater Accra Region and measuring 5.07 acres to my sisters Abena Saah and her children, Comfort Amoateng and her children, Abena Konadu and Juliet Akua Arko and her children on equal share basis forever,” the will states.

Gyakie featured by NBA Star, Serge Ibaka and Grammy Winner, Diplo on new song

Published

on


To add to the roster, Gyakie’s recent feature is on a song with heavyweights, Diplo and Serge Ibaka.

The song, “Like This” is reflective of Gyakie’s usual style: laid back and packed with enough punch to make it an instant vibe. Her vocals, the only one featured all through the song, is almost dreamy over the incredibly smooth production.

Serge Ibaka is a Congolese-Spanish professional basketball player. He’s known not only for his exploits in the NBA but his other roles as a Fashionista, athlete, YouTuber, philanthropist and more. He’s been described as one of the most influential African personalities globally and has been very vocal about his love for music and Afrobeats. This will be his first release this year after a number of songs were released last year.

Diplo, the other feature on the song, is a three-time Grammy award-winning DJ, songwriter and record producer. He’s a lead member of the electronic dance music group, Major Lazer and has music credits with names like Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Snoop Dogg, Sia, Chris Brown, Bad Bunny and more.

The Ghana-to-the-world agenda is regularly screamed out to artists and we cannot help but be impressed at this new move from Gyakie and her able-bodied label, Flip The Music.

With hints at a project dropping soon, it’s almost impossible not to be eager to see what the artist has in store for her steadily growing fanbase in and beyond Ghana.

However, the PSG midfielder has his reasons for switching surnames after putting his mother’s surname on his records.

According to him, he inherited the name ‘Boateng’ from his stepfather but decided to change it after he divorced his mother.

“I want to put on record that I am now Georginio Wijnaldum, not Georginio Boateng, in fact I have been known as George Wijnaldum for four years now,” the Dutchman said in a 2013 interview, as quoted by Goal.

“Boateng was the name of my former stepfather who is related to retired Dutch footballer of Ghanaian-origin George Boateng.”

He added: “My stepfather gave his surname to me but after he divorced my mother I got the Boateng off my name and took my mother’s name Wijnaldum as my surname.”

“My mother and my original father are Surinamese so people should get it clear.”

Wijnaldum is a Premier League, Ligue 1 and Champions League winner and has also been capped 86 times by the Netherlands.
