Ghanaian dancehall, Theophilus Nii Arday Otoo, better known as  Epixode, has finally come out to the open to tell why he was arrested.

The artiste who was arrested last week by 2 hefty policemen says the incident occurred due to a misunderstanding between him and the officers.

Few days ago, a video of Epixode went viral of him exchanging words with the policemen . He was handcuffed and was being dragged into a police vehicle. The video caused a stir on social media for a while with people wondering what led to his arrest.

in an interview with Zylofon FM’s Sammy Flex on Tuesday, he made this statements for clarification.

According to him, he was returning from Tema with his team around 11pm last Friday when they were stopped by the Tema Police for driving in a ‘DV’ plate.

He continued that since he was not the one driving but his manger, he did not approach the police but sat in the car observing what was going on till he realized his manager was being mishandled by the police.

He said “I was sitting in the car but I couldn’t watch because he was there because of me so I came out. Sometimes when stuff like this happen, tempers go high”.

Confirming if it was his fault for getting arrested, he said he got angry over the issue which could have been solved amicably by both parties.

“At a point in time, I lost control of my temper,” he said.
