A bodygaurd of the president of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo has punched and crashed an old man to the ground in a current video that has gone viral on social media
The event that warranted the President’s presence is still unclear, but the manner in which the older man was pushed by the hefty bodyguard was captured on a clear camera by an onlooker who stood at a safe distance, unlike the old man.
In the 33-second video, the old man is seen rushing toward the car as he shouts “Nana nie” in a clearly complementary fashion with an outstretched hand, suggestively to give the President a high five.
The sequence of his plot was immediately twisted as he was met with a push to his chest, closer to the hem of his neck, that sent him to the ground, and quickly back on his feet to avoid being passed on by the President’s car.
Other guards surrounded him and appeared to admonish his carelessness, instead of consoling or dusting the literal dirt and emotional shame off him. The frail man’s only offence was to seek a wave or perhaps a closer view of President Akufo Addo.
The President’s car moved on to more shouts of accolades from the crowd on the scene as the abused old man was left out of the rest of the video chronicle of events.
