The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Police Service is investigating rapper Sarkodie for trying to register a stolen vehicle.
The rapper was picked up by the police when he went to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) in Accra to register an Infiniti car they said had been reported stolen.
ASP Joseph Obinifo Darkwah, Public Relations Officer of the CID, who confirmed the arrest to Myjoyonline.com, said the rapper has been granted bail and is assisting the police with investigations.
“We invited him [Sarkodie] to the CID Headquarters involving a case in which he was a party to so he came with his lawyer yesterday [Wednesday] and he has been granted bail,” the CID PRO said.
Giving the facts of the arrest, ASP Darkwah explained that, “We are investigating a case in which an unregistered vehicle was sent to the licensing office to be registered by Sarkodie but police have been looking for this vehicle for some time now.”
The rapper, the police added, went to the licensing office earlier this week to register the car, an Infiniti saloon car.
ASP Darkwah said the police is still investigating the matter and will give more details later.
