A Deputy Minister of Communications Felix Kwakye Ofosu has said the arrest of Ghanaian-Lebanese Fadi Daboussi was not politically motivated.

Speaking to TV3 Kwakye Ofosu argued that the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) has arrested other people in a more bizarre ways than they did with him.

“I’m aware that they have made several attempts to question him over this publication but as for the mode of arrest, it is not unlawful”.

“Let there not be falsehood that he was arrested because he made offensive comments and some have even claimed that he was arrested because he published a book but this book was published months ago if I’m not mistaken so it’s not on the basis upon which he was arrested,” he added.

Kwakye Ofosu said Daboussi was arrested because of statements made against President Mahama.

“He was arrested for these specific allegations relating to the suitability of the president to continue in the office that he is holding, and it is a security matter. There is no person or security in this world that would sit aloof.”
