"Please disregard the reports about Actress Fella Makafui's arrest. She was invited yesterday and departed soon after respectfully honouring the invitation," he wrote.

According to Mr. Sarpong, Fella Makafui shared all necessary information with investigators about her herbal products to assist their investigation.

She presented her license from the Ghana Traditional Medicine Practice Council as well as details of her FDA-registered products.

Fella Makafui also provided information on a few products still undergoing registration.

It was alleged that she had been selling unregistered herbal drugs and products on social media.

A range of herbal products were said to have been seized from her business.
