Accra FM’s Bobbie Ansah picked up by Police

Host of the Citizen Show on Accra FM, Kwabena Bobbie Ansah has been arrested by some men in police uniform.

The men failed to disclose their identity, according to a source from the radio station which is a subsidiary of the Class Media Group (CMG).

The broadcaster was picked up at the entrance of Class Media Group few minutes after 10 pm.

He ha finished hosting his programme and was heading home, the source indicated and stated the armed men did not invade the premises.

“He was ambushed. We don’t know where he is being sent to,” he said.

Bobbie Ansah is believed to have been arrested for his criticisms against the Akufo-Addo government.

He is the third broadcaster to have been harassed by state security agencies in recent times.

Captain Smart of Onua TV and Power FM’s Oheneba Boamah Bennie have been recently encountered the police over their opposition to some government policies and harsh criticisms against the NPP Administration.

Oheneba Boamah Bennie was jailed on Tuesday following claims he made against President Akufo-Addo after the 2020 elections were declared.

Some human right advocates have condemned the use of state security to harass critical media outlets and  journalists.

US-based Ghanaian law professor, Kwaku Asare has criticised such acts by the state, saying it breeds culture of silence.
