This comes after the journalist was heard on his show on Onua TV, inciting the Ghana Armed Forces against Members of Parliament and also calling on them to stage an uprising.
According to sources, Captain Smart chanted during his show that “where we have reached, we require an uprising with a positive defiance. I am even shocked at Ghana’s soldiers. You can enter Parliament when MPs are being sworn in but when MPs are fooling, you can’t enter Parliament. Everybody is quiet in this country.”
Reports further indicate that Captain Smart’s arrest was effected not long ago — he is yet to be handed over to the Police for further interrogation and the appropriate charges slapped on him.
According to a source close to Media General, “Captain Smart informed his employers of his arrest and a Lawyer was dispatched to go and provide legal advice to him while being questioned by the security agents.”
