Fadi Samih Daboussi was arrested at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) last Friday for allegedly publishing a book which many say contains offensive comments about President John Mahama but his lawyer, Hassan Tampoli says his client has so far been granted bail.

The arrest of Fadi earlier saw a group calling itself "Ghana Must Know" threaten to occupy the BNI to request the immediate release of  the journalist.

Fadi's arrest raises questions over Ghana's press freedom as some social commentators describe the move by the BNI as undemocratic.
