Kumawood actor recounts how he escaped death due to phone theft accusation. Kumawood Actor, Emmanuel Afriyie, popularly known as Adanko has recounted how he narrowly escaped death at Kumasi Maakro near Suame over phone theft.
According to Adanko, his life was spared based on the fact that he is a celebrity.
“If not because of my movies and the small fame I had, I wouldn’t be alive today to tell my story,” he stated.
Recounting how the incident happened on Ambassador TV Cooking with the Stars monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Adanko explained, “I went to set to shoot a movie and the saddest aspect of the matter is that I didn’t receive a penny from the producer”
“When I got to Maakro, a certain man accused me of stealing his mobile phone and he started shouting for people to come around. They were eager to attack me until one of them realized that I’m an actor.”
Recounting further, he added, “Some of them came to the scene with life-threatening objects including stones and sticks to lynch me but because they recognized that I’m an actor, they decided to call the man’s number.
“After calling the number several times, they found the man’s phone inside the passenger car so he begged me and they all left. Ambassador, I have preached against instant justice on every platform because some people have lost their lives because of instant injustice” he added.
Adanko, however, advised Ghanaians to have faith in the security agencies and report any criminal cases to the police to help curb instant justice in communities.
