Prof Stephen Kwaku Asare, a US-based Ghanaian academic and a lawyer, has called on the Inspector-General of Police, Dr George Akuffo Dampare, to release NPP’s Abronye DC and other individuals arrested for publication of false news and offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace.
According to him, someone making allegations does not breach the peace of the public and that the “concert and circus” of the police is getting out of hand.
In a post on his social media timeline, Kwaku Azar, as known famously, wrote:
“The police, with the connivance of some district courts, have effectively overthrown the speech and media provisions of the Constitution.
“I don’t know if this breaches the peace but the concert and circus are getting out of hand.

Kwame Baffoe, as he is known in real life, according to some media reports, claimed that the former President approached a pressure group, #FixTheContry Movement, in a bid to help him become president again.
