The Suame Divisional Police Command in the Ashanti Region has granted bail to gospel artiste Brother Sammy after he was arrested for advertising an unlicensed cure for HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.
Divisional Police Commander, ACP Owusu Boampong, told Kumasi FM’s Elisha Adarkwah that the police is on a manhunt for another suspect in the case.
He said when the artiste’s accomplice is arrested, the two of them will be officially charged and arraigned.
A statement issued on Saturday and signed by the Chief Executive Officer of the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), Delese Darko, said the Authority, with the assistance of the Ashanti regional police, made the arrest.
It explained that the arrest became necessary after Brother Sammy, in a series of videos on social media claimed that he had a product that could cure HIV/AIDS as well as chronic diseases.
According to the statement, the FDA has not approved the advertised product.
