Captain Smart released after NIB arrested him

Broadcast journalist, Captain Smart has finally been granted bail hours after he was nabbed by the National Intelligence Bureau.

The journalist who works with Media General was arrested by operatives of the NIB on Wednesday, October 19, 2022, as he went home from work.

His car was allegedly crossed by the operatives in traffic and then whisked away.

He was interrogated in the presence of some senior officials of Media General.
It is, however, unclear why he was detained by the NIB but it is believed that Captain Smart was arrested because the Ministry of Information threatened to sue him for alleging in a video published and circulated by Onua TV that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was actively involved in illegal mining activities.
