The single's game which was set up by mutual took a sour turn when Godwin Martey noticed that all controversial points that were supposed to be awarded in his favor were being awarded to Asamoah Gyan by his brother Baffour, who acted as the umpire of the game.
"Most of these controversial points that were in my favor, Baffour Gyan was giving the points to Asamoah Gyan. At a point, I became a bit uncomfortable with it. So there was a particular point that to me was obvious that the ball was good, and Baffour Gyan insisted that it the point was for Asamoah Gyan"
He indicated that although the spectators agreed with him, he received no support from them because of who Asamoah Gyan is.
After observing the situation for some time, Mr. Martey revealed that he was unhappy and asked for a proper tournament to be arranged with a match commissioner and a neutral umpire to ensure fairness to both parties.
According to Mr.Martey after he had registered his displeasure with the manner in which the game was proceeding, Baffour Gyan shouted at him in "a very aggressive tone", saying: "My friend shut up and stand there and play".
Feeling intimidated by the angry rants, he quit the game and sat down on the sidelines.
From his account of the incident, Baffour Gyan continued to shout angrily at him.
Baffour Gyan is said to have charged towards Him, slapping him continuously and insisting that he gets back in the game.
"Then he came down and came to hit me that 'my friend go there, I say go and play'.He was hitting me to go and play," he added.
"As he was hitting me, Asamoah Gyan came in support of what Baffour was doing -assaulting me".
According to Mr.Martey, even after he had complained to Asamoah Gyan that he was being assaulted by Baffour, Asamoah Gyan replied by saying "Yes, you deserve it".
Godwin managed to record the voice of Asamoah Gyan adding he will sue the Gyan brothers.
"I'm suing big time. I'm going to sue...The fact that Baffour threw a challenge to me that I can go to any court, any police station, they can't do anything, that actually gave me more adrenaline to prove to them that the police force is still a good force."
"I will sue tortuous liability on the civil case and I will press for the police to also prosecute them criminally. I will fight this to my last blood".
The case has since been reported to the Cantonment police station
