Host of Onua TV?FM Morning Show, Blessed Godsbrain Smart popularly known as Captain Smart has been arrested and detained by the Nima Divisional Police Command.

The Police said Captain Smart is presently in Police custody assisting the investigations.

Meanwhile, the National Media Commission (NMC) has openly condemned Captain Smart’s utterances as they have described it as unprofessional and inciteful.

In a letter to Onua FM and copied to the Ghana Journalists Association and other media stakeholders, the NMC said “we are particularly concerned about a recent broadcast in which “Captain Smart” calls for insurrection against the state of Ghana and its institutions.

This, by all standards, crosses the line of robust and critical broadcasting and transforms your radio station into a megaphone of war.

While that particular broadcast, without more, constitutes adequate grounds for regulatory action, we still retain the belief that given the chance, management could take steps to bring your content unto a level of professional acceptability. We are fortified in this belief by the fact that considerable parts of your other broadcast, including the news, offer that hope,” the NMC stated.

The Commission reminded the management of Onua FM that exercising the required professional caution, “is in your interest.”
