State of the Nation Address: Policeman heckles GTV cameraman

A cameraman who is believed to be an employee of the state broadcaster, Ghana Television (GTV) was heckled by a policeman at parliament on Tuesday February 21, 2017.

The cameraman was trying to capture President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo when he was singing the National anthem.

In the video, the policeman after getting closer to the cameraman tried pulling him away.

The cameraman however signalled him to be patient since he possibly thought he had perfectly positioned himself to capture the president singing the anthem before he enters parliament to present his first State of the Nation Address.

The policeman continued to pull the cameraman who had also taken a firm stand not to move.

The cameraman wrestled the police officer in front of the President, who was stiff, while the national anthem was being played.

The incident is reported to have drawn a lot of onlookers at the venue. Other security personnel intervened and brought the matter to rest.
