DCE Isaac Odoom Reacts

The DCE, in an interview with Adom News which was played on the same show, denied the allegations leveled against him.

He explained that at the time of running over the object, he did not know it contained fish, saying he suspected the content to be wood placed in the middle of the road.

He also denied assaulting the woman.

How can a trader drop her goods on the stretch of the road? That road is a major road, I saw something on the road and I thought it was a piece wood because there was a carpenter on that stretch, he explained.

The DCE said when he later found out that the object he ran over wasn’t wood, he enquired about the owner but no one owned up so he drove off.
