Why We Arrested Hanks Anuku, Others—Police

Last week, news went viral online that Nigerian actor, Hanks Anuku, who now lives in Ghana, was arrested in the neighbouring West African country.

They were reportedly acting a robbery scene for a new film, but the producers of the movie did not get the necessary permits before embarking on the production.

During the shoot, residents thought the actors were actual armed robbers and alerted the police, who later learnt they were only acting a movie.

Members of the film crew were reportedly arrested by the police.

However, Hanks has kept mute on the matter since it broke.

But according to the Accra Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Christian Tetteh Yohuno, “These people did not have any permit from the lawful authority and went ahead to wilfully obstruct public way and hinder the free passage of persons and vehicles, as well as causing fear and panic.”
