The arrest of broadcaster Bobie Ansah by national security officers on Thursday night, according to Kwaku Baako, Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, is a misguided method to settling the issue of alleged dissemination of false news leveled against him.
According to him, those who have been wronged should launch legal action to correct any wrongdoing or malice committed against them.
Kwaku Baako remarked in a Facebook post that the security personnel’s actions in the case of Bobie Ansah are unsustainable.
“In the context of this case, the State’s (Police) action/reaction is UNSUSTAINABLE and WRONG-HEADED. Let people whose integrity and reputations may have been harmed by the journalist’s actions and omissions pursue civil libel claims to “heal the mischief and malice,” he urged.
The broadcaster accused the First Lady, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo, and the Second Lady, Mrs. Samira Bawumia, of gifting themselves “state lands at AU Village, around the Kotoka International Airport for the establishment of Rebecca Foundation” on January 1, 2022, according to the police charge sheet.
Mr. Ansah then went on to label the First Lady “a thief” who had “taken state land around the Kotoka International Airport,” a statement he knew was “likely to cause a breach of the peace,” according to the report.
According to police, Bobie Ansah was invited to participate in investigations multiple times but did not show up.
The broadcaster was apprehended at the Class Media Group’s gate shortly after 10:00 p.m. on Thursday, just as his daily show, ‘The Citizen Show,’ was coming to a conclusion.
