The Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) is reportedly holding a Ghanaian-Lebanese pilot and author for making offensive statements against President John Mahama.
Fadi Dabboussie was arrested around midday on Friday upon arrival from an Egypt Air flight from Lebanon.
He was picked up from the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) and driven to the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) headquarters in Accra.
This was on the invitation of the Director of BNI, according to Mr. Dabboussie's lawyer, Hassan Tampuli.
“I have been to the office of the BNI and I was denied access to him. I was told the officer responsible for the case was not in the office and that I can only have access to him on Monday,” Mr Tampuli told Joy News.
Mr Dabboussie is believed to be a sympathizer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He is also the author of a book titled ‘59 years of Ghana to Nowhere: The future is Now,’ a book said to critical of President Mahama.
The story first broke on social media, where it was claimed that Mr. Dabboussi’s house has been ransacked and all copies of his books taken.
Some opposition NPP sympathizers and human rights activists have condemned the act on social media.
