Ghanaian dancehall act, Theophilus Nii Arday Otoo, known by stage name Epixode, has finally explained the reason behind his arrest.
The artiste who was arrested last week by the Tema police says the incident occurred due to a misunderstanding between him and the officers.
He made the statement during an interview with Zylofon FM’s Sammy Flex on Tuesday.
Some days ago, a video involving Epixode exchanging words with police went viral. He was handcuffed and was being dragged into a police vehicle. The video caused a stir on social media for a while with people wondering what led to his arrest.
According to Epixode, he was returning from Tema with his team around 11pm last Friday when they were stopped by the Tema Police for driving in a ‘DV’ plate.
He continued that since he was not the one driving but his manger, he did not approach the police but sat in the car observing what was going on till he realized his manager was being mishandled by the police.
“I was sitting in the car but I couldn’t watch because he was there because of me so I came out. Sometimes when stuff like this happen, tempers go high”, he said.
Confirming if it was his fault for getting arrested, he said he got angry over the issue which could have been solved amicably by both parties.
“At a point in time, I lost control of my temper,” he said.
