3 min


The Mzbel and the Police Assault/Battery Saga is getting serious. If you have not been following the incident, click here to read.

Reports have it that, an Accra Motor Court has remanded the Hiplife star, her PA and driver to spend five more days in police custody for battering and assaulting a police officer.

Mzbel, her driver Maxwell Mensah and PA -Emmanuel Edem Nordzor (student) were all charged before the magistrate court presided over by Emmanuel Plange Brew on various motor traffic offences and battery/assault.

Maxwell Mensah the driver had four charges;  unauthorized parking, causing road obstruction, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.

Nordzor, the PA  Mzbel claimed had just jumped into the drivers seat whiles the car was parked with the driver having stepped outside was charged with driving a motor vehicle without licence.

Mzbel’s charges  are; obstructing a police officer from executing a lawful duty and assaulting a police officer.The 3 pleaded not guilty to the various charges.

At the court, their lawyers tried to secure a bail for them but the prosecuting officer ‘Chief Inspector Seiwah’ was able to convince the Magistrate that, they should be ‘locked up’ until possibly the next hearing as their deliberate actions were major and could have even caused the death of the law enforcement officer.

Even though there seems to be two contracting facts as to what happened (one from the accused persons and other from the prosecutor), According to what I have gathered from Daily  Guide, below are the facts the prosecutor presented to the court though it was denied by the accused persons’ lawyers….

On Saturday at about 12.30pm, a police MTTU officer on duty at the Tudu traffic light in Accra realized there was heavy traffic on a section of the road which obstructed the free flow of vehicles.

The officer, in his attempt to identify the cause, realized it was caused by a Mitsubishi 4×4 vehicle with registration number GR9470-11, driven by one Emmanuel Nordzor and subsequently requested to see his licence.

After the cop’s inquiry, Emmanuel hurriedly left the driver’s seat and handed the vehicle over to Maxwell Mensah who rudely asked the policeman to clear off from the road for them to pass.

But the policeman, who was not deterred by the conduct, insisted on seeing the licence of Emmanuel.

Maxwell then ignored his request, started the vehicle and hit the cop, who fell on the bonnet of the vehicle while he drove off, regardless of what happened to the policeman.

They then drove for a distance, with the policeman still clung dangerously to the bonnet, while eyewitnesses screamed at the horror of what was happening.

It took a private security van, with a policeman on board, to block the Mitsubishi on the main road to ensure they never escaped.

When the vehicle eventually stopped, Mzbel allegedly got out of the Mitsubishi, and yelled at the cop, claiming he had no right to cross their path.

She allegedly got physical and held the uniformed policeman by the neck in an attempt to strangle him, while pushing a clenched fist in his face; but onlookers rushed to the rescue of the policeman.

Reports said when Mzbel realized she had fallen foul of the law, she started wailing, and claimed she was assaulted by the policeman instead, but onlookers started hooting at her.

The vehicle and its occupants were therefore taken to the MTTU headquarters where the three were arrested and subsequently processed for court.

      1. @nani, is she the only one to be arrested for a motor traffic offence??do u knw the number of tyms i have been arrested….just last week, i was arrested for not wearin ma seatbelt.the key in such situations is respect for the law enforcement agent…..if u try to be bossy,dey’ll arrest ur ass..

  1.  I love this part “Unauthorised parking causing road obstruction resisting arrest and assaulting an officer” hahahaha  love it 

    1. @Miyagi, from a previous comment i posted on dis issue, i stated that the only tym anoda person assumes the role of a driver when a car is parked is if the car is parked in a no-parkin zone….from the unauthorised parkin bit, it’s obvious dey parked at an unauthorised place……5days, dats a long tym without a comfy bed…………lol

  2. Assault and Battery (A/B) only? You try to kill someone and there is no attempted murder charge? Eish. {All my haters I’m back and there is nothing you can do about it….lol} Hello my peeps missed y’all.

    1. when i read her facebook status on monday,i knew she was lookin for trouble….on ma comment on that status, i adviced her to be careful cos she doesn’t know who’ll be readin………i guess she didn’t speak to her lawyer before tellin tha stupid ass story…… in situation like dis, u don’t try to be too-known cos u’ll be fried…..Mzbel said the police are lies, are dese not the same ppl who have had her back since the KNUST to her house robbery and “rape” saga????…oh how the chips have fallen……..i find it difficult to undastand when ppl state that this is nothin and she should be left alone.do these ppl knw tha ppl have spent tym in jail because dey could pay a GHC50 fine??? driver have been jailed for not wearing seatbelts,for drivin without extinguishers,for havin broken drivin mirrors etc…why should Mzbels own be different???? i say that if she is indeed guilty,den the law should be allowed to tak it’s course…i happened to drive behind a TV show hostess from kokomlemle to achimota in the evening and can u believe that she never had her lights on???? dese “celebs” feel dey’re above the law and dey should be made to undastand that dey are not…..

  3. oh missy babe sorry….u don suffer well well chai……since yr mum died,u were fingered at ust campus nd later raped by 4 guys at yr residence, arbaaaah….mame sorry wai…..u will be fine soon ok…

  4. Pls this is just to educate your vast readers ok.The law as it operates in Ghana ,which is a commom law jurisdiction, is that there is the presumption of innocence in any criminal matter or offence until proven guilty by a competent court of jurisdiction and even the Police has no right to determine who is guilty or otherwise.The standard of prove in this case must be ‘beyond reasonable doubt’.However the Police can arrest and charge anybody with any offence but what a competent court of jurisdiction will convict you of is another thing altogether ok.So to this extent Mzbel shall only be guilty of that offence if the court says so.Please this is to educate all and sundry on their human rights as far as the law is concerned.Thank you.

  5. wat am i hearing that mzbel or wat ever her name is,is a celebrity or an international star…she is js a screen entertainer..smtyms i pity for my country gh..no where in europe or america wil smbody assault a police officer in public..only done in gh..ghanaians dnt respect their policemen..if found guilty…she n her dump ass friends shd be jailed…A celebrity my ass… “CONNARD” MZBEL…..after aLL hw many international shows does she has on her credit…….i wonder y the media n others cal her a celeb or international star……is about tym…the media n others stop calling mere local entertainers as celebrities or international star……ghanaians lyk fotocopy too much…..dnt wana write much…..

  6. oooh mzbel ua very arrogant to have assaulted a police men in the uniform,what a pitty scene it was.I’m sure she has had an opportunity to travel abroad, where on earth can such a misguided conduct could have taken place unless Ghana so they call it.So my personal advise is that, the soo call celebraties should be assertive in their dealing with the public servant no matter how the person circumstance is.Lets help built the better ghana, than to go and pay homage some where else and to allow your own to deteriorate, is so disguisting please.Never should that an unfortunate scene should happen again.Thank u
