The Ghana Police Service has made a clarification concerning the arrest of Ghanaian musician, Charles Nii Armah Mensah who is known as Shatta Wale.
This is contrary to an initial claim by the Ghana Police Service that they arrested Shatta Wale making Ghanaians think they fished him out from his hideout.
After the initial claim by the police, Shatta Wale made a post that he was not arrested, however, he went to the police himself.
It took several hours before his claim of presenting himself to the police was confirmed and in the statement released by the police reads;
