Jojo Bruce-Quansah, editor of the Ghana Palaver, will appear before court Tomorrow, charged with deceit of public officer.
The Public Relations Officer of the Police Criminal Investigations Department, Mr Joseph Benefo Darkwa, told the Daily Graphic that investigations carried out by the police had revealed that Mr Bruce-Quansah had not been attacked by unknown assailants as he claimed and that he had made up the story.
He said that the police found that Mr Bruce-Quansah had not been soaked in blood as alleged by someone whose name was given only as Christie.
He said Mr Bruce-Quansah, during investigations, told the police that he was soaked in water and not in blood as alleged by the said Christie, but the police found no evidence of that claim.
Mr Darkwa said Mr Bruce-Quansah claimed that he was injured and went to a private clinic in Tema but could not tell the police the name of the doctor who treated him, neither could he lead the police to the said clinic.
He said after a thorough examination at the Police Hospital, no mark of violence was found on Mr Bruce-Quansah to indicate that he was assaulted.
He added that no sign of violence was found in the house of the suspect to suggest that there was a violent attack on him.“From all these, it is clear that he deceived the police,” he said.
