Just in! Akufo-Addo orders re-arrest of Appiah Stadium in Kumasi

He is currently being transferred to Police HQ in Accra

President Akufo-Addo has ordered the ‘re arrest of Appiah Stadium for calling him a “wee” smoker. Appiah Stadium was invited by National Security operatives in Accra yesterday and interrogated for insulting President Akufo-Addo as resembling a monkey and smoking marijuana “wee”. After interrogation he was asked to render an apology which he did. He returned to Kumasi last night.

Appiah Stadium

Early this morning ostensibly on the orders of President Akufo-Addo, Appiah Stadium was picked up again from his Kumasi residence and detained at the Kumasi Central Police station. When news got to Accra that friends were organizing a lawyer to represent him, a police source disclosed that they have received urgent orders from HQ to transfer him to Accra immediately.

Appiah Stadium is on board a Police vehicle, at the time of filing this story, headed for Accra. His wife and family are frantic.

What many observers are wondering is how a party whose activists so insulted President Mahama while in office, are so intolerant of such insults of Nana Addo now that he is in government.

It is also a paradox that the very person who prides himself on repealing the criminal libel law, is using the Police to criminalize speech.
