Police arrest Ahmad Isah, Brekete Family host, ‘for slapping child abuser’

A human rights activist and broadcast journalist, Ahmad Isah has been arrested by operatives of FCT police command for slapping a woman who allegedly assaulted a child.

Isah, popularly called ”ordinary president”, hosts a long-running radio and television programme known as ”Brekete Family”.

This is coming days after he was seen in a BBC Africa Eye documentary slapping a lady who was accused of setting her brother’s daughter on fire over an allegation that she is a witch.

The video sparked public debate on and off social media. While many condemned the act, others expressed their solidarity with him and Isah has even apologised for his action.

Speaking on the incident on Monday, the Brekete Family host said he was arrested by the police over the incident.

“I have been at the police station since morning,” he told the newspaper.

I have been arrested by the police over the same matter.”

Confirming his arrest by the police in a Twitter post, the organisation said: “Ordinary President, Founder and CEO of Brekete Radio and TV program honoured an invitation to the FCT Police Command this morning.

“We want the public to know that we are yet to see or reach him.”
