The primary figure at the front entrance of the Accra Regional Police Command on September 21, 2023, was Evans Ago Tetteh, the husband of Metro TV newscaster Bridget Otoo.
He had apparently heard of his wife’s suffering at the hands of police officers at the station, where she suffered a torn top as a result.
Tetteh was observed erupting in rage and daring the cops to touch his wife once again, defying all instructions to stay calm.
Later, after consulting with his wife, he departed.
The circumstances under which the newscaster’s irate spouse arrived at the station were posted online hours later.
“I apologize to anyone who saw him driving like a mad man on the Winneba road. He did that in under an hour when he was supposed to be at a workshop in the central region. I’m glad he arrived safely. and on his way back to Winneba,” she tweeted.
Bridget narrates her ordeal
“I was holding a guy’s phone, he was live on Twitter, now X and I was talking in the space because a question was asked on what was happening on the demonstration grounds.
“While I was talking and holding his phone, the police charged at us for doing absolutely nothing, attacking him. He ripped my bag and they pulled my dress and now I have a ripped dress,” she lamented.
