Authorities have confirmed the arrest of one suspect said to have stolen a mobile device belonging to US-based rapper Meek Mill.

The police said in a statement that the device has since been retrieved from the suspect whose name has been given as Nuhu Sule alias Ababaawa.

The suspect was arrested Friday, December 30, 2022, at his hideout in Accra, nearly 24 hours after the incident.

“He is currently in Police custody and will be taken through the due process of the law”, the police said in a statement.

The musician, excited to visit Ghana, performed at the event on Thursday. But prior to his performance, his commute to the premises ahead of his performance was a turbulent one. He was mobbed by fans excited to see their superstar.

Amateur footage showed Meek climbing over the gate into the arena, as he struggled to ditch the zealous group.

He later informed fans while on stage that he had been robbed. In a post on Instagram later, he noted that his phone had been stolen and pleaded for whoever had it to return it.

Ghanaian artiste Shatta Wale took to his Twitter page to plead with the patrons who may have come across the phone to return it.
