Ghanaian police arrest Shatta Wale for spreading false information

The Ghana Police Service has arrested popular dancehall singer, Charles Nii Armah Mensah popularly known as Shatta Wale for spreading false information. In a Facebook post on Monday, the artist linked threats to his life to "a fake pastor" who had made a prophesy on a local radio station that he would be killed.

The singer’s representative Nana Dope further posted a message via his social media account claiming that Shatta Wale had been rushed to the emergency ward of a hospital. This triggered a reaction from the Ghanaian police as they noted that through a Facebook post that they were in search of the artiste whose whereabouts was unknown at the time.

It is understood that the police also arrested two of the singer’s close friends identified as Nana Dope and Eric Venator for “allegedly spreading false information with the intention of causing fear and panic.” The authorities warned that anyone found to be sharing false information that "capable of disturbing the peace of the country" would be prosecuted.
