According to the reports, the outspoken journalist and his three bodyguards were picked up by the National Security operatives for possessing pistol.
The reports continued that Smart and his bodyguards were handed over to operatives of the National Security but they were later granted a police inquiry bail after interrogation.
But a day after the said reportage, details are emerging that the said arrest which was widely reported in some section of the media is false.
Our checks at the Eastern Regional Police Command reveal that at no point was Captain Smart arrested at the conference grounds and called on the public to discard the said report.
According to the command, Captain Smart was on Adom TV at the time the false story was trending.
Captain Smart went to the Conference with his personal bodyguards but we are reliably informed that that has been the practice because of several attempts on his life due to his “Fabewoso” programme.
