Shatta Wale has been denied bail by the police, disregard rumour.
Shatta Wale, a dancehall artist, has been denied bail, according to the Ghana Police Service.
The musician is still in prison, according to the Service’s Acting Public Affairs Director, DSP Alexander Obeng, with two others aiding in the inquiry.
This comes only a day after he was detained for allegedly fabricating a narrative claiming he was shot by an unknown assailant on Monday night.
On Wednesday, October 20, he stated, “The investigators are ensuring that the proper processes are followed so that no one’s right is infringed.”
In recent hours, social media has been flooded with rumors that the musician who was jailed for inventing a narrative about being shot by unknown assailants has been released.
The majority of these claims have been accompanied by amateur video of several industry colleagues strolling through the Police station’s hallways.
He also revealed evidence available to them suggests that the musician’s charges may be pivoted around “publication of false news, usurpation of a public officer…and attempts to cause fear and panic.”
However, the police stated on the JoyNews channel’s The Pulse that the self-styled dancehall king, the pastor, and two others are still in prison and undergoing the required procedures.
According to DSP Obeng, they would be charged and processed for court in accordance with the security service’s procedures.
Born Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr, Shatta Wale explained that he undertook the action on the back of a prophecy by Bishop Stephen Akwasi, who predicted his death.
In a viral video, the founder and leader of New Life Kingdom Chapel International noted that Shatta Wale would lose his life on October 18, similar to that of South African reggae artiste, Lucky Dube, who was shot on October 18, 2007.
Shatta Wale stated that he felt his life was under threat, for which reason he vowed that until security agencies step up to address such threats, his whereabouts will remain unknown.
The pastor in question, Bishop Stephen Akwasi, popularly known as Jesus Ahuofe, was picked up by Police on Tuesday, October 19.
Meanwhile, the Police Service has advised citizens against publishing false information capable of disturbing the country’s peace.
