Nigerian-born movie director Frank Rajah worked in Ghana as a movie producer for over a decade but he recently relocated to Nigeria. He has however explained his sudden departure saying that he had cause to believe life was no longer safe in Ghana.

He told News-One that though he loved working in Ghana, it became critical to relocate to Nigeria because his security was no longer assured here.

 Frank explained that while in Ghana, he was attacked by well-organised gangs on different occasions for reasons he found strange. On all the occasions he was attacked, he noted, his attackers never stole any property of his except a hard drive which contained new movies he had shot and was working on.

 “I went home on different occasions to see my things scattered in my room. They never stole anything and I don’t know what they were looking for", he said.

"One time too I was driving in town and they stopped [me] and searched my bag and took my hard drive containing my movies. I had my phones with me but they never took them. It was strange and I couldn’t believe it. It didn’t just happen once. I don’t feel safe,” he added.

 It was widely reported some time back that some unknown persons stole movies directed by Frank Rajah at Taifa, a suburb of Accra. Frank subsequently had issues with the producers of those movies as some of them demanded their monies from him. That incident apparently marked the beginning of his woes.

Frank directed major movies such as Beyonce-The President’s Daughter, Princess Tyra, The Game, Somewhere In Africa and a host of others. Majority of his movies produced some of the big actors/actresses on Ghanaian TV screens.
