Video: How Captain Smart Was Arrested In Rambo Style By National Security - Eye Witness Account

Award winning media Journalist and host of Onua Maakye show, Godsbrain Smart popularly known as Captain Smart was arrested by the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI).

This incident according to Onua TV happened on Wednesday, October 19, 2022, when the broadcaster was going home from work.

An eyewitness reported that Captain Smart was arrested in Rambo style as if he had weapons on him and was a dangerous target.

Caleb Nii Boye, a journalist with Accra-based 3FM witnessed the incident and gave a detailed account on how Captain Smart was picked up and detained by the operatives.

According to him, on their way home they were intercepted by 4 cars and a motorbike which happened to be the National Security.

Caleb indicated that they were all escorted to the BNI office, had their phones and gadgets seized for a couple of minutes before returning it to them and then detained only Captain Smart and his gadgets.

He expressed shock in the way they were all arrested and asked whether if it was the best way the Security Agency could go about the arrest.

“But NIB too. Captain Smart nti you brought 4 cars and 1 motorbike just to pick him up. Ghana paaa”, a part of his statement read.

Media General on the hand has revealed that Captain Smart has been released by the BNI hours after his controversial arrest.

This comes after Captain Smart said on Monday, October 17, 2022, that government has spent about 416 million to fight galamsey and yet nothing has been achieved. 

He noted that this points to the fact that the President himself is actively involved in galamsey. Captain Smart boldly insisted that nothing could change his mind that the president is involved in illegal mining.

The Information ministry in response to Captain Smart’s allegations denied the President’s involvement in Galamsay and referred him to National Media Commission for review.

Many believe that Captain Smart was arrested because of his comments.
