MCE For Sekondi-Takoradi To Face Court Today For Reckless Driving, Alleged Assault Of Police Officer

The Metropolitan Chief Executive for Sekondi-Takoradi, Abdul Mumin Issah, will appear in court today, Friday, February 4, 2022, for an alleged traffic violation.

Mr Issah was arrested by the Western Regional Police Command on Thursday for allegedly driving while intoxicated, verbal assault, and offensive conduct towards a police officer who was conducting his legitimate duty. He was then charged with assaulting a public official, offensive conduct conducive to breaches of the peace, and disturbing the peace in a public place, all in violation of Sections 205, 207, and 298 of the Criminal and Other Offences Act of 1960, Act 29.

The MCE was allegedly driving a Toyota Land Cruiser with the plate number GE 5615-20 when he approached a police snap check station near the Kwesimintsim Cemetery, driving erratically and carelessly.

When one of the on-duty cops tried to stop him, he verbally assaulted and threatened him.

“You are stupid, you ugly policeman, you say a whole police officer, you are nothing. Don’t worry, let him play his King Kong thing, I have exercised patience for you to call whoever is coming, I could just pass by and there is nothing he can do. If I decide to pass by what else can you do,” Mr Issah said in a viral audio of the said altercation.

“If you had acted otherwise, I would have beaten you to death,” he screamed.

During the altercation, the police officer was overheard declaring that he was a professional who would not insult him back but would guarantee that he was prosecuted for driving dangerously and endangering his life. The MCE, a well-known figure in the city, had served as NPP Chairman for the Takoradi Constituency before being appointed after the death of former MCE K.K. Sam. Source: .
