Ghana Court orders arrest of man for claiming President John Dramani Mahama will fall

A Circuit Court in Accra has ordered the arrest of Kwame Gyebi, the man who allegedly stated that President John Dramani Mahama will ”fall down” during this year’s Independence Day Parade.

Gyebi, 33, who is being held on charges of threat of death and offensive conduct, failed to turn up in court, hence prosecuting Deputy Superintendent of Police George Amegah prayed for a bench warrant.
