A security officer at the Metro Mass Transit Depot (MMT) in Kumasi is seeking justice after he was allegedly assaulted by the Managing Director.
Benjamin Osei said Albert Adu Boahen repeatedly slapped him for allowing private commercial vehicles to pick passengers around the terminal.
The incident which happened two weeks ago is said to be one of the triggers of last week’s nationwide strike by staff of the company.
According to him, despite reporting the incident to the police at Suntreso, no action has been taken.
Mr Osei who is undergoing treatment said he feels pains in his right arm and has difficulty moving it.
He was recounting the alleged ordeal to Nhyira FM’s Kofi Asante Ennin on ‘Kroyi Mu Nsem’, Thursday.
“We were at work when our MD came from Accra from a working visit so when he was going round he called me. So I run to him and he started slapping me without any provocation,” he recounted.
“Before l could ask what I had done wrong, he hit my head into a stationed vehicle and continued beating me without any provocation,” he continued.
He added, “after beating me he asked me why I have allowed other vehicles to park around the terminal.”
“As l speak, my right ear is defective. Am dying and l have nobody to turn to for help,” he said.
Industrial Relations Officer of the General Transport Union of the Trades Union Congress, Kofi Adu, confirmed that he had been informed of the incident.
He said the Union is meeting with the alleged victim’s employers to resolve the matter.
Meanwhile, Mr Adu Buahen has denied the allegation and has declined to publicly comment on the matter.
He insists it is a calculated attempt by some individuals to tarnish his hard- won reputation.
