The Ghana Police Service has announced the arrest of popular Ghanaian dancehall artiste Charles Nii Armah Mensah known as Shatta Wale.
The multiple award-winning musician was arrested Tuesday evening October 19, 2021, a few moments after two of his boys were picked up.
Shatta Wale has been wanted by the police since Monday, October 18 after news of a supposed attack on him went viral.
The police noted in a statement that Shatta Wale was not on admission at any hospital in Accra, neither did any of his close friends and family members know of the attack or his whereabouts.
They, therefore, called on the public to help locate the musician, later describing the news of the attack as a hoax.
The prophet, whose prophecy had instigated the supposed attack as per Shatta Wale’s post on Facebook early Tuesday, was arrested by the police for questioning.
Shatta Wale later wrote on Facebook that he will turn himself in following the arrest of Bishop Stephen Akwesi Appiah.
Police announced the arrest of the musician on its Twitter page despite his hint of turning himself in.
Details will be made known by the state’s law enforcement agency soon.
