Onua TV/FM’s Captain Smart has pleaded not guilty to the charge of offensive conduct conducive to the breach of the peace under Section 207 of the Criminal Offences Act 1960 (Act 29) after appearing in court on Thursday, December 9, 2021.

Born Blessed Godsbrain Smart, the former Multimedia and ABN broadcaster is in court for making “some unsavoury pronouncements that according to the Police hinge on peace and security”.
