A4doe: I was surprised to find later that they told people that my arrest was based on acting unruly in front of the President’s house.”-Threatens to sue police officers who assaulted himA4doe, the producer behind the hit protest song ‘Bring Back Our Container,’ has denied police report that he was arrested for exhibiting unruly behavior in front of the President George Weah’s residence.In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer, A4doe said the Liberia National Police (LNP) Zone 8 police report was fabricated and intended to shield the public about what exactly happened.“The police report is totally made up. The first thing, they lied by saying the arrest was made in front of the President’s house, when it was not. They arrested me at the President’s house junction which is far away from the actual house.“I’m still trying to understand why I was arrested when I did nothing wrong. Kpanto and I, the other guy who raps on the song, were heading towards my house when the police assigned at President’s house junction stopped the bike we were on for what they claimed was a violation.“After the bike rider was arrested, I decided to appeal for his release and that’s how one of the police officers asked me to identify myself. I told him I’m a musician, the producer of the song about the alleged missing money,” A4doe explained his nightmare.The rapper and producer added immediately after his introduction, one of the police officers began insulting him for making the song, something which he told the officer was unnecessary and unprofessional.A4doe also added when the insult intensified, he took his phone and started to record the situation—a move that angered the police officers on guard that night and resulted in the tussle over the phone and his forceful arrest.“When I refused to give the phone in order for them to delete the video, the police officer who started the insult ran to me and started to squeeze my hand to get the phone but he was unable.“Since the pains were becoming unbearable, I give the phone to Kpanto to run with it. Unfortunate they were able to get hold of the phone after it dropped from the artist while they were chasing after him. They deleted the video; however, since I was online, the video was not completely deleted,” A4doe added.After deleting the video, the police officers decided to arrest me for trying to record them and took me to the police station and place me behind bars.According to A4doe, after his release early Sunday morning, after the arrest which took place around 11:30 pm the previous night, the police were unable to give him a charge sheet.The rapper said: “All they told me was to get out and that they don’t have any charge sheet for me. I was surprised to find later that they told people that my arrest was based on acting unruly in front of the President’s house.”Meanwhile, A4doe has threatened to sue the two police officers who assaulted him during his arrest, which has resulted into body pains.“I’m going to sue them for not only hurting my body but violating my civil right. The way they handled me was embarrassing and humiliating. I’m of the strongest conviction this was a planned thing by the officers and intended to disgrace me. The police attitude toward me is unacceptable and I know the President is not aware of this,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
