A Deputy Director of Communications for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Ernest Owusu Bempah is demanding an unqualified apology from musician cum politician Kwame Asare Obeng aka A Plus for accusing him of being responsible for the attack on the United Showbiz programme on UTV.

According to Owusu Bempah, he has no knowledge in plotting the attack.

In a statement, he said: “I have become aware of a rather unfortunate incident in the studios of UTV), where a group of young men interrupted this weekend’s edition of United Showbiz program. The reason cited for the disruption of the program is unknown to me. Again, I have no knowledge of the situation, neither do I know the characters involved.”

He added: “Surprisingly, a panelist on the show, Kwame Asare Obeng, otherwise known as A-Plus descended into the gutters with all sorts of attacks on my person. Furthermore, A-Plus directly linked me to the incident and repeatedly claimed that I was responsible for the disruption of the program and went ahead to issue a direct threat on my person. He also falsely alleged that I mobilized the group that disrupted the United Showbiz program without providing any lawful justification or evidence, and also indicatd that he will mobilize thugs to come and harm me at Ghana Gas.”

Owusu Bempah served notice saying: “Let me put on record that these accusations and defamatory statements were made without any substantiation or lawful justification.I have made a formal complaint to the police regarding the threat made on my life.”

The NPP Deputy Spokesperson asked A Plus to retract the comment or be sued.

“On the other hand, I am by this statement demanding for a retraction of A-Plus’s defamatory words and an unqualified apology. If he should fail or refuse to do that, then I would have no other option than to instruct my lawyers to institute legal action for
the damage and injury caused to my integrity.”
