Singer, Bella Shmurda has been deported from Ghana after being found guilty of assaulting a doctor with a fork while in quarantine by the Adjabeng Circuit Court in Accra.
He was deported together with two others, Ramsey Omeofe and Jubreel Abimbola, and each of them was fined GH2,000. According to Sahara Reporters, they were also barred from traveling to Ghana for three months.
After being placed in quarantine for testing positive with COVID-19, Bella Shmurda and the two others allegedly became upset and assaulted the doctor.
The three was reportedly quarantined and tested for COVID upon their arrival in Ghana, as was required during the pandemic. They were quarantined in an Accra hotel after having their samples taken and testing positive for the virus, requiring them to stay in quarantine.
They reportedly assualted the doctor who gave the news to them with a fork, apparently enraged that the development would break their journey to Ghana. The attack, as gathered was part of the trio’s purported attempt to get out of quarantine.
They also hurled obscenities and curses at health personnel and the country as a whole, accusing them of conducting “false” COVID-19 tests.
The three were charged with Verbal Abuse on a Medical Officer, Physical Assault on a Medical Officer, and Attempted Assault with a Table Fork on a Medical Officer, and were convicted by the Adjabeng Circuit Court on their own guilty pleas.
