The Nima Divisional Police Command on Thursday December 2, 2021, arrested Blessed Godsbrain Smart aka Captain Smart, a popular radio presenter.
He was arrested following unsavory pronouncement that hinges on peace and security, a statement from the police noted.
He has been charged on the offence of Offensive Conduct conducive to breaches of peace as provided under Section 207 of the Criminal Act 1960 (Act 29).
He’s presently in police custody assisting the investigation.
Meanwhile, in a new development, Captain has been granted bail after he was arrested Thursday afternoon.
The controversial Onua FM broadcaster has in recent scaled up his criticism of the Akufo-Addo administration, and some other reputable personalities in the country over what he says is their silence on the government.
Meanwhile, the National Media Commission (NMC) has described Captain Smart’s utterances as unprofessional and inciteful.
In a letter to Onua FM and copied to the Ghana Journalists Association and other media stakeholders, the NMC said “we are particularly concerned about a recent broadcast in which “Captain Smart” calls for insurrection against the state of Ghana and its institutions.
