Patrick Asiedu, the man suspected to be behind the viral audio alleging that the police stopped and planted “wee” and cocaine in his vehicle has been arrested by the police and accused of fabricating the narration he recorded and shared on social media.
Preliminary police investigation has established that he is not a medical doctor as he claimed in the audio but an Uber driver.
He is currently in police custody.
The police in a press statement Wednesday night said it has been confirmed that he is indeed called Patrick Asiedu but the narrative he recorded and shared on social media in an audio did not happen.
“The investigations show that the entire story narrated in the audio tape is false and a total fabrication by the suspect.”
“The supposed military intervention and the alleged fight between the Police officers and the Military described in such dramatic detail in the audio tape are all false and a figment of the suspect’s imagination,” the police statement dated January 18, 2023, signed and issued by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Grace Ansah-Akrofi, the Director of Police Public Affairs on Wednesday night said.
Below is a copy of the police statement and the audio the suspect recorded and circulated.
