ModernGhana Brouhaha: Peace FM Editor Obeng Manu arrested

MyNewsGh.com has confirmed the arrest of an Editor of Peace Fm, Yaw Obeng Manu in connection with alleged cybercrime claims made against editors of online news portal, Modern Ghana.

It is gathered that Mr Obeng Manu was invited by the National Security but later referred to the Greater Accra Regional Police Command where he was formally notified that he has been arrested.

According to sources at the Regional Police Command, he has been granted bail and is expected to report back for further interrogation into allegations emails hacking and other cyber-related crimes.

On Peace FM Tuesday evening, Editor of ModernGhana claimed his other worker who also arrested said the National Security operatives asked him how he had access to Peace Fm emails and he said it was given to him by one Obeng Manu who worked at Peace FM and later employed him as a reporter for the Publisher Newspaper

The Editor, however, said ModernGhana had no idea about it and cannot be held responsible because the worker they employed two months ago was involved in such a thing.

Emmanuel Ajafor Abugri however still maintains he was tortured and discredits the statement put out by National Security that his claims of maltreatment in custody were untrue.
