A video in possession of MyNewsGh.com revealed the lawmaker was not enthused about a comment made by the Central Regional Police Commander DCOP Paul Manly Awini and nearly engaged in fisticuffs with the officer of the law but for the timely intervention of those around.
Mr. Kennedy Agapong in the company of Member
of Parliament (MP) for Efutu Constituency in the Central region, Alexander
Kwamina Afenyo-Markin was at the institution to quell the escalating tension between
students and the Vice Chancellor Reverend Father Prof Anthony Afful-Broni.
Following reports of a sporadic firing of warning shots that
further heightened the tension earlier, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) firebrand
tried questioning the motive behind the conduct of the police but the commander
made a passing comment that did not sit well with Mr. Kennedy Agyapong who
immediately went ballistic.
He was heard saying “What is that you are doing? If you play
the fool they will remove your clothes” while heading towards where the police
chief was standing, others restrained him amidst shouts from the students in
support of the action of Mr Kennedy Agyapong.
It would be recalled the maverick politicians in January
this year in similar fashion had a brawl with Muntaka Mubarak on the floor of
parliament over a request made by the latter he should be referred to the
privileges committee over Ahmed Suale’ murder.
The encounter between the two ‘enemy MPs’ was recorded from
the public gallery of parliament via phone by a lady who posted it on social
In the 31-second video obtained by MyNewsGh.com, the two lawmakers were seen in heated verbal exchanges in Twi amidst threats while colleagues tried to calm the situation by dragging the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central away.
