Police quiz Ghanaian songstress Mzbel for spreading ‘fake news’


Ghanaian artiste Belinda Nana Ekua Amoah, also known as Mzbel, is expected to make a second appearance at the Police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) today, Tuesday, August 25, 2020.

The ‘Awoso Me’ hitmaker was arrested and admitted to bail Monday, following a petition filed against her by TV personality Stacy Amoateng over alleged defamatory comments.

Police Public Relations Officer of CID, DSP Juliana Obeng confirmed the development in a telephone interview on Adom TV, monitored by Dailymailgh.com.

Mzbel is reported to have said that Amoateng had tested positive for the deadly HIV per information she got from popular prophet Nigel Gaisie.

“Mzbel came to the CID headquarters on her own but she was officially arrested and cautioned,” Obeng said.

She added that the musician had been cautioned on Section 208 of the Criminal Code which states: “Any person who publishes or reproduces any statement, rumour or report which is likely to cause fear and alarm to the public or to disturb the public peace knowing or having reason to believe that the statement, rumour or report is false is guilty of a misdemeanour.”

Mzbel is reported to have made the defamatory remarks on Accra-based Onua FM, a subsidiary of Media General Group.

“For now anybody can be an object of interest in this case; if investigations lead to any further arrests we will do so”, the police spokesperson noted.
