The Chief Executive Officer of Web Soft Solutions, Mr Godwin Martey, has threatened to sue the Gyan brothers for allegedly assaulting him.
The Web Soft Solutions CEO accused the former Black Stars player of assaulting him while his brother, Asamoah Gyan, looked on and allegedly said he deserved it.
The incident occurred at the 37 Army Officers’ Mess tennis court in Accra on Wednesday, 14 October 2020, when Asamoah Gyan engaged Mr Martey in a singles duel.
The game, however, took a different turn when the former Black Stars player, who was the umpire of the game, allegedly awarded all the controversial points to his brother much to the annoyance and protest of Mr Martey.
The Web Soft CEO explained that: “Most of these controversial points that were in my favour, Baffour Gyan was giving the point to Asamoah Gyan.
“At a point, I became a bit uncomfortable with it.
“So, there was a particular point that, to me, was obvious that the ball was good, and Baffour Gyan insisted that the point was for Asamoah Gyan”.
Displeased with the behavior of the brothers, Mr Martey said he suggested they end the game an rather plan a proper tournament with a neutral umpire and a match commissioner.
However, Mr Martey said Baffuour Gyan, in an aggressive tone, objected to that proposal, insisting: “My friend, shut up and stand there and play”.
Mr Martey, therefore, said he quit the game and sat on the sidelines since he felt intimidated by the Gyans but Baffuor continued yelling at him angrily.
“Then he came down and came to hit me that: ‘My friend, go there, I say go and play’. He was hitting me to go and play”.
“As he was hitting me, Asamoah Gyan came in support of what Baffour was doing – assaulting me,” Mr Martey narrated.
Mr Martey further continued that after complaining to the Black Stars General Captain about his brother’s behaviour, Asamoah Gyan responded: “Yes, you deserve it.”
Mr Martey said he would sue the two brothers for assaulting him as he has an audio recording of the incident.
“I’m suing big time. I’m going to sue… The fact that Baffour threw a challenge to me that I can go to any court, any police station, they can’t do anything; that actually gave me more adrenaline to prove to them that the police force is still a good force.
“I will sue tortuous liability on civil case and I will press for the police to also prosecute them criminally. I will fight this to my last blood,” he added.
The incident has since been reported to the police.
