Host of United ShowBiz on Accra-based UTV, Nana Ama McBrown, has spoken after her rat race to court earlier on Friday over a case in which artiste Manager, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson aka Bulldog is standing trial for supposedly threatening President Akufo-Addo.
McBrown had to rush to court after she heard that the Circuit Court in Accra presided over by Her Honour Evelyn Asamoah, had issued a witness summons for her.
“Everything is ok, we have laws here and we just went to court as part of obeying the law. It’s not everything we have to say but I think we are fine … it’s my show so I have to go so it’s not for anything bad,” Nana Ama McBrown said.
“So nobody should say Nana Ama McBrown has been arrested … “she said.
The TV presenter cum actress was hosting United Showbiz on UTV when Bulldog warned that President Akufo-Addo would not be allowed peace if he does not ensure that monies owed Menzgold customers are settled.
According to Bulldog, the President would not finish his second term if the monies are not paid.
It is not clear how such a statement amounts to threatening the President. In the past, Assin Central MP, Ken Agyapong had been freed by the court after declaring war in Ghana and declaring mass murder against Gas and Ewes holding that he had made an empty threat without taking corresponding action.
Meanwhile, because McBrown was the host of the program, the Police invited him to give a statement. The same Police would later go to court and cite McBrown as a prosecution witness.
According to McBrown and her lawyers, the news of her being a prosecution witness came to her through the news and that it was a surprise because she had not had any such discussion with the Police.
Even more shocking, to her was that on the basis of the Police’ claim that she had agreed to be a prosecution witness, her inability to appear in court had led to the court issuing a witness summons for her.
After she ran to court, her lawyers accused the Police of using subterfuge to frame her as a prosecution witness. They, therefore, prayed the court to withdraw the summons.
The court refused and said she will be given the opportunity to read her witness statement.
The case has been adjourned.
