Founder of the Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA) Mensah Thompson has been arrested by the Police.

Starr News sources say the outspoken head of ASEPA is currently being held at the Teshie Police station in Accra.

The arrest follows a formal complaint by the Military to the Police. He is reportedly set for court Thursday, February 10, 2022.

Mr Thompson is being charged with the publication of false news after he claimed that President Akufo-Addo and his daughters used Ghana’s presidential jet for shopping in London in December 2021.

The Military who are custodians of the Presidential jet has denied the claims.

Mr Thompson later backtracked the allegations saying “In the same medium I made the earlier publication, I withdraw the publication pending an official response from the GCAA. I unreservedly apologise to the Ghana Armed Forces if their image was in any way affected by my publication. We shall put out for your consumption the response to our request from the GCAA records of the Falcon 900-EX.”
