According to the Accra Regional Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Effia Tenge, John Paintill’s wife had lodged a complaint against him for allegedly stealing her car.

She said when the police invited him for interrogation, he refused to cooperate.

According to her, John Paintsil became furious and tried leaving the meeting, “…It was at this point that the District Commander instructed that he should be arrested and a statement taken from him.

“Because he was not satisfied with that he assaulted the district commander. He hit him in the right eye and also pushed the investigator. So it took some few police personnel to get him arrested” she stated.
