Social Media sensation, Wee Teacher has been arrested by the police for selling weed in public.
In an interview with host DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, his manager Focus confirmed the arrest by the Koforidua police.
He narrated that, Wee Teacher insisted on getting down from the car on their way to Accra after a show in Koforidua.
He said, he later found out his artiste was going to sell canabis in large quantities and all efforts trying to stop him proved futile and resulted in he being arrested by the police.
"We were all preparing to return back to Accra after a show in Koforidua. All of a sudden, Teacher said he needed to do something urgently in town before he lives so I should take the lead to Accra and he'll join me later, I didn't like the idea but I can't stop him because he's not a child however I told him to be careful.
Just before I got to Accra, I had a call that Wee Teacher has been arrested and detain for selling wee in commercial quantities. I didn't know what to say or do because I had advised him to quit doing that or do it in private since wee is illegal in the country." He said.
Focus noted that, attempts to get some influential people to get him released proved futile.
He added, Wee Teacher was later arranged before court and was granted bail on the condition that, he will bring five people - three relatives and two natives from Koforidua and also a huge sum of money before he will be granted bail.
Focus pointed out that, Wee Teacher unfortunately couldn't meet the demands of the court and was then sent to remand.
"When I got to the Koforidua police station, the CID told me that, Teacher has been arraigned for court and granted bail on the condition that, he will bring 5 people - his mother, father and sister and 2 natives from Koforidua and a huge sum of money before he can be granted bail. The condition was so huge that we couldn't meet the court's demand and the CID said, Teacher has been sent to the prison yard. So for now, he is on remand." Focus said.
He furthered that, they are doing everything they can to get him out of prison.
Focus is calling on all fans and loved ones of Wee Teacher to come to his aid to get him out of prison.
