YEN.com.gh has broken the news of Kwame Owusu Fordjour, popularly known as Dr UN getting arrested.
As carried in our report, Dr UN was arrested in Kumasi on Friday, October 16, 2020, while in the studio of Hello FM.
Dr UN was sent to the Asokore Magistrate Court where he was sentenced to two weeks of remand.
Following our reports videos have popped up showing Fordjour's arrest and later incarceration behind bars.
In the first video, Dr UN is seen on the premises of Hello FM and he was heard ranting that nothing was going to come out of the arrest he descended the staircase.
When they got out of the building, some people around were heard shouting 'honourable' as Dr UN acknowledged the cheers before getting into a car to be whisked away.
In the second video, Dr UN is seen behind bars in his usual siling mood. Some of his cellmates were heard shouting his name.
"That is Dr UN," one guy excitedly says as he points his finger at Fordjour through the openings in the cell door.
A lady who is likely to have recorded the video is also heard shouting Dr UN's name while jokingly telling him that he has some awards in there.
As earlier reported by YEN.com.gh, Dr UN's arrest and remand sentence is in connection with a bench warrant issued on him.
The Asokore Magistrate Court is reported to have issued a bench warrant for Fordjour about six months ago after Dr UN flouted a bail.
Dr UN is reported to have organised an awards scheme at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi in 2018.
But the police in Kumasi stormed the venue to arrest Fordjour who was later arraigned before the Asokore Mampong Court.
At the court, he was granted bail in the sum GHC20,000 with his parents signing as his sureties.
However, Fordjour absconded after the bail and after attempts to re-arrest him failed, the court issued a bench warrant for him.
Dr UN visited Kumasi today and was scheduled to appear on a show at Hello FM for an interview on an awards scheme he is set to organise in the city.
While in the studio, the police came with the arrest warrant.
