Yesterday TheNewsGh.Com reported on how Kwadwo Nkansah Lilwin connived with Abeiku Santana — aided by some police personnel at the Tesano police station —to manhandle a Ghanaian female blogger, Ohemaa Candace on claims that she has written a false story about the kumawood star actor.
The unfortunate incident was broadcasted on UTV, also got published on their facebook handle which drew a lot of attention on social media.
However, the female blogger, Ohemaa Candace, who is in charge of Ghsplash has broken her silence and in an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM, has explained what led to her arrest.
According to her, she was indeed arrested at the peace FM premises and was taken to the Tesano Police station.
She revealed she was at their premises the whole of that day which she even granted an interview on neat FM to discuss some stories she had published on her website.
“I was there to meet Kwame Amo, he was my formal teacher, so I met him so we could actually discuss things about my website. So the newsroom that we met, Lilwin was also there which we had an encounter and all of that” She stated.
On whether she met Lilwin before or after her publication she continued that “When I was waiting for Kwame at the reception, then I overhead the conversation that led to the publication I did. So that was before the publication”
Defending her publication she said, though she didn’t see the accident, she overheard Lilwin explaining to the receptionist that because he is a star, people at times fake accidents to extort money from him.
“By then, I was taking a snap of him (Lilwin), when he was having a chat with the receptionist which he noticed and slammed me for it so I couldn’t approach him to take his side of that accusation before my publication”.She added
On how she was finally apprehended after she published the story, she revealed;
“After my live show on Neat FM, Sammy Kay told me to hang in there for a while, not knowing, they knew about the story I did and Lilwin asked him to keep me there so he can meet me. Abeiku Santana also joined it, they got pissed, called the police and they apprehended me”
There have been a lot of different opinions on the incident where some believed that Lilwin took the right action against the blogger — just as he said in the video that was broadcasted — to deter other bloggers from publishing ‘fake’ news.
