It was all serious business at Tasacco Valley Wednesday, January 8, 2020, when officers from the Ghana Police Service arrived to arrest some aggrieved customers of defunct gold dealership, Menzgold, who were picketing at the house of the company’s CEO.
But the seriousness lasted until the officers spotted Togolese football star, Emmanuel Adebayor amongst the crowd.
The footballer, like other residents of the estate, came out to find out what was happening after hearing gunshots fired in the neighbourhood.
Leader of the team that was on the grounds, ACP Kwesi Ofori who was beside himself with joy, was the first to approach Adebayor who was on a bicycle and engaged him in a conversation.
After a few seconds, ACP Kwesi Fori called some other officers to also share a handshake with the footballer, a period that could be likened to a ‘meet and greet’ session.
ACP Kwesi Fori later told media men that they just had a short discussion on football.
The officers went back to complete the task for which they were deployed, after the session with Adebayor.
