Actress Emelia Brobbey who was alleged to have shoplifted in the United Kingdom, arrived Thursday night to a rapturous reception at the Kotoka International Airport.
Emelia Brobbey was alleged to have stolen a bracelet at a shop – Piercings – while on vacation in London recently and was also reported to have been arrested by the Police.
It was also alleged that due to the incident, an actress Gloria Agyeman, who hosted her, and another person, Eunice Akua Adjeiwaa are currently having issues with UK Border Agency’s detention centre and may be deported to Ghana because their visas had expired.
Emelia Brobbey, who was met on arrival by some movie personalities, including Akrobeto, Vivian Jill, and Mr Beautiful, told journalists the allegations leveled against her were false.
According to her, five months ago, she went to the UK to deliver and after the delivery, she went to shop with her baby in a pram.
She narrated that as she left the shop, shop security approached that their detectors had detected that she might have not paid for an item in her pram.
A bracelet, Emelia Brobbey added, was found in her possession and she was asked if she was ready to pay for the item and she indicated her preparedness to so.
She noted that, after an interaction with the security personnel, who took her address, she was allowed to go only to receive a visit from the police days after.
The police, she recalled, only checked her passport and visa. The popular actress stressed that, contrary to speculations, she was never arrested.
Emelia Brobbey was of the believe that some persons had set to tarnish her image claiming that, she had never stolen before in her life.
Touching on the status of her friends – Gloria Agyeman and Eunice Akua Adjeiwaa – Emelia noted that her lawyers were currently handing the matter.
