Accra FM presenter, Bobie Ansah, reportedly arrested after his show

A presenter with Accra FM, Kwabena Bobie Ansah, has been reportedly arrested.

According to a producer of his programme, the Citizen Show, Kwabena was picked up by persons purported to be National Security operatives on the night of Thursday, February 10, 2022.

It is unclear what occasioned the development which ensued around the premises of the radio station after his political talk show ended at about 10 pm.

“We have no idea about where he has been sent to,” the show’s producer said in a Facebook live stream after the incident.

Another presenter at the media house, Odasani Odilia described the incident in Labone as an ambush.

She explained that on her way to the station to prepare for her show; “I saw one black car drive past. A second car, ash in colour, stopped by me and looked at me suspiciously. The last car is the one we met at the gate. That was when I asked passers-by about why the cars are moving around in such fashion only to find out that he (Kwabena Bobie Ansah) has been arrested.”

“It wasn’t the right procedure to arrest him. He was not rightfully arrested,” she added.

On the final show prior to his arrest, Kwabena Bobie Ansah and his panel had discussed among other things, the E-Levy cake saga and the arrest of ASEPA Executive Director, Mensah Thompson.

Security officials are yet to publicly comment on the matter.

This brings to three the number of journalists arrested by security officials this year.
