'Sucking Breast Gives Wisdom And Long Life, Do It Every Morning' - Captain Smart Tells Men (WATCH)

Blessed Godsbrain Smart, popularly known as “Captain Smart”, has been granted bail following his arrest on Thursday.

This was disclosed by Media General in a press statement in reaction to the arrest of its employee, who is the host of the morning show “Onua Maakye” for some unsavoury pronouncements made, according to the Ghana Police Service.

The Kanda-based media house noted that Captain Smart was taken to the Nima Police station for interrogation and was cautioned on the offense of offensive conduct conducive to the breach of peace of the country as provided under section 207 of the Criminal Act, 1960 (Act 29).

“He (Captain Smart) provided a caution statement and then was granted bail,” the release dated December 2 read.

According to Media General, the arrest of its employee is of no coincidence, but rather a sign of the “intolerance increasingly creeping into the Ghanaian society.”

“We are increasingly concerned about the new trend of arrest of journalists and media practitioners,” the media house bemoaned.

Captain Smart Granted Bail!!!!!

The company holds the assertion that the comments made by Captain Smart have been misconstrued by the Ghana Police Service, for such reason renders his arrest illegitimate.

In view of this, Media General has urged the public and the police service to conduct a careful review of the entire statements made by the host of Onua Maakye since this “will reveal that it (Captain Smart’s comments) did not amount to threats to the peace and or stability of the country.”

But contrary to the media house’s position, the National Media Commission (NMC) believes Captain Smart’s utterances were unprofessional and inciteful.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Police Service has been urged to exercise restraint in dealings with journalists and “dismiss these broad charges” in order to protect press freedom.
