Oheneba Boamah Bennie

A Ghanaian court has sentenced a journalist to 14 days imprisonment for contempt of court.

Oheneba Boamah Bennie, a radio presenter at Power FM, reportedly issued a series of threats to President Nana Akufo-Addo in a live video on his Facebook page.

The journalist alleged President Akufo-Addo met some judges of the Supreme Court to influence them in the opposition’s petition against the results of the 2020 elections.

Attorney General Godfred Yeboah Dame said Bennie’s remarks were meant to bring the judiciary into disrepute.

Justice Elfreda Dankyi agreed and also fined the 36-year-old $470 (£345).
