Gun-wielding Captain Smart arrested and granted bail at NPP conference

Blessed Godsbrain Smart, commonly called Captain Smart, host of Adom FM’s morning show was Saturday afternoon arrested by the police when a pistol and other accoutrements were found on him at the New Patriotic Party’s national delegates conference grounds.

He was handed over to operatives of National Security and has since been granted a police enquiry bail after interrogation.

A security source told Graphic Online National Security has since taken over the case.

Blessed Godsbrain Smart is at the conference grounds as part of the team of journalists from the Multimedia Group Limited providing coverage for the Koforidua conference.

Apart from Captain Smart’s arrest, the conference has been largely peaceful as of now with no other major incident, a police source told Graphic Online, apart from a muted protestations of a section of NPP’s Germany constituency delegates who claimed to have been denied voting rights.

The NPP are electing national officers to steer the affairs of the party, with 6,000 delegates expected to cast ballots.
