According to a statement released by the Ghana Police Service, Captain Smart was arrested for making a distasteful pronouncement which they claim breaches the peace and security in the country.

He was invited by officers from the National Investigations Bureau (NIB) from his home at 11:00 am on Thursday after which he was subsequently taken to the Nima Police Station in Accra for interrogation.

Well, his company, Media General has released a strong-worded statement calling out the Ghana Police Service, saying that they should exercise restraint in the dealings with journalists legitimately doing their works.

According to their statement, the recent trend has affected journalists who work with Media General and simply doing their work and, like every Ghanaian, should be protected by the Constitution.

Today’s arrest and detention of Captain Smart is by no means an isolated incident, but just one more egregious example of the intolerance increasingly creeping into Ghanaian society. We are convinced that a careful review of the entire statement made by Captain Smart would reveal that it did not amount to threats to the peace and or stability of the country as claimed by the Ghana Police, they further said in their statement.
