The Kpeshie Divisional Police Command has finally arrested the CEO of ‘After 5’, Francis Afotey Mensah following his threat of death on harmless persons and causing damage to their properties.

It would be recalled that Mr. Mensah, last Saturday told the media that armed robbers came on him at his residence, a situation that necessitated him discharging fire arms.

He also accused his Uncle the CEO of Kpookeke alcoholic beverage, Nii Botwe Laryea II of being behind the attack to kill him.

But the Kpeshie Divisional Police Commander, ACP Kwame Tsidi, in an interview with the media on Monday debunked the claims of Francis Afotey Mensah explaining that the issue that led to the confrontation in the house of Francis Mensah was purely business and not robbery attack as the suspect claimed.

“Reuben Tay had a business with Afotey two years ago. So on the 27th March, 2021, he went to see Afotey in his house. As they went there Rexford Laryea Mensah came to interact with them and started heckling them,” the Divisional Commander emphasized.

He further said that, “As the heckling went on Francis emerged from his House and started firing shots. He fired 2 shots from a side arm, another shot was pointed at Reuben Tay but the rifle didn’t fire.”

He said the matter was later reported to his command which further proceeded to impound the damaged vehicle of the complainant.

The Police Command therefore mounted a manhunt for him to be arrested after he began playing hide and seek with the Police.

The Police finally picked him up at his office and detained him  pending investigations.

ACP Tsidi later cleared the CEO of Kpookeke of his involvement adding that, nothing links him to the incident.
