Movie producer arrested for ‘fake’ kidnap

The producer of a movie ‘Obi Nim Ebenezer’, Agyeman Jones has been arrested by the Tafo Pankrono Police in Kumasi.

This follows earlier claims by persons close to the producer that he had been kidnapped by the main characters portrayed in the movie, Prophet Ebenezer Opambour and Bishop Daniel Obinim.

Speaking to Citi News on Friday, Chief Superintendent Adusa of Tafo Pankrono Police explained that it appears the complainant and the producer connived to deceive the public as a means of promoting the movie.

“Around 8:00 he reported himself and it appears that it was a hoax. We believe that he did it in the interest of his business, so we are preparing to arraign him before court”.

Chief Superintendent Adusa also noted that Prophet Ebenezer Opambour and Bishop Obinim were mistakenly blamed for the kidnap as a result of what the complainant reported.

“We want to take this opportunity to extend our regrets to those whose names were mentioned, it wasn’t the Police who did that, it was the complainant”.
