But narrating what led to the development, Richard, who has now been freed, claimed the arrest was caused by his old friend to whom he owed an amount of GH¢800.

He stated that about two or three years ago, he spoilt that particular friend’s mobile device worth GH¢8000 and had since promised to replace it, but he couldn’t.

However, upon noticing that he had gained some level of fame and money, his friend decided to now call for his arrest, in a bid to retrieve the money.

“I spoilt my friend’s phone sometime back and now because I’m famous and he thinks I have made money so he sent the police after me. It’s been 2 to 3 years ago. He has been asking me for the money for a while now. I haven’t been picking his calls because I have been busy. The phone costs GH¢800,” he said in an interview with Angel FM.
