Authenticity Is Our Hallmark

Accra Fm

Some 20 heavily-armed policemen stormed the premises of Accra100.5FM at Labone, Accra, in Rambo-style on Monday, 10 January 2022, to arrest the station’s news anchor Nana Ama Agyarko for what they described as obstruction of their work and the abuse of a police officer.

Unsuccessful in their attempt to arrest the female newscaster, the station’s Drivetime host, Doctor Kay, was arrested instead by the armed policemen who alleged that he also obstructed them from doing their work.

The brouhaha began when some three plain-clothed men, claiming to be police officers, in the company of five others who also claimed to be staff of state broadcaster GBC, walked into Accra100.5FM to demand the station’s permit to broadcast the ongoing Afcon matches.

According to the men, the station had no right to broadcast the games.

This resulted in exchanges between the men and some staff of the station.

News anchor Nana Ama Agyarko, who suspected the plain-clothed men may not be police officers as they claimed – because one of them, who had short dreads, wore an earring and a football jersey over ripped jeans and slippers – requested to see their ID cards.
