Most journalists crave arrest to be popular like Captain Smart - Ziga

A renowned radio presenter, Nana Frimpong Ziga, has opined that most radio presenters in Ghana wish to be arrested to gain popularity in the face of the public.

Mr Ziga referenced the arrest of Godsbrain Blessed Smart, aka Captain Smart, by the National Security after the law courts granted him bail and condemned the act as undemocratic.

In an interview with Onua FM’s Christian Agyei Frempong on Anigye Mere, Nana Ziga said that level of fame Captain Smart has attained is unprecedented. He pointed it out as an inspiration to existing and up and coming journalists to ascend to that level.

The ace radio presenter stressed that this is not the first time Captain Smart has been arrested, and the more you detain journalists, the more that person trends.

“Popular journalists such as Kweku Baako, Kwesi Pratt, Komla Dumor, among others came to the limelight via such arrests and tortures by the National Security or the police. And most of the journalists in Ghana now wish to be arrested to be more exposed.”

He concluded that he knows Captain Smart as the finest and a very bold journalist, and no one can cow him to refrain from speaking the truth.
