Ghana Comedienne, Afia Schwarzenegger born Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa is dragging the Nima Police and Multimedia Group to court for defamation over reports she was arrested last week in relation to fraud.
The controversial broadcaster is demanding GHS150, 000 as compensation from the defendants for defaming her reputation according to a Ghbase report.
It revealed that a writ dated 11th August 2017, filed by Nkrabea and Associates on behalf of their client, Afia Schwarzenegger, said there were several reports on Thursday August 10, 2017 which stated unequivocally that Afia Schwarzenegger had been arrested by the Nima Police station and charged with fraud, threat, assault and insulting behavior.
According to the reports, Afia was arrested for defrauding Kiki Banson – former manager of singer Becca. Nima District Police Commander, Superintendent Paul Bampo, confirmed this to Adom FM Presenter, Mike 2 on Thursday.
Mr. Paul Bampo insisted that Afia Schwarzenegger is under investigations for defrauding Kiki Benson. This, Afia believes is a calculated attempted to defame her, hence her decision to take legal action.
Afia gave a cheque of GHC10, 000 which was given to her by Boss of End Point Homeopathy Clinic to Kiki Banson as part of money they (Afia and Kiki) were supposed to raise as sponsorship for an all-female comedy show they planned to do together.
The writ also stated that “Feeling mollified, peeved and humiliated, Kiki Banson has resorted to all kinds of mischievous ways to damage Afia. So Kiki Banson chose to use the strategy of a fraud story.
“He went with two CID Policemen from Nima Police station to plead with the Boss of End Point Homeopathy Clinic to write a police statement saying that he has been defrauded by Afia Schwarzenegger. The Doctor refused to write the statement. He told the Police that he gave the money freely to Afia to use it in whatever way she likes.”
