One of Ghana’s most popular singers, Shatta Wale, has been arrested hours after he said he was on the run over fears of his life.
He had posted on Facebook that his “life is in danger”.
The police accuse him and two others of “spreading false information” over an alleged gun attack on the reggae star.
Shatta Wale is best known for his collaboration with Beyoncé on her Lion King album, which expanded his fan base across Africa and globally.
The 37-year-old dancehall singer has not commented on the allegations against him.
In a Facebook post on Monday, the artist linked threats to his life to “a fake pastor” who had made a prophesy on a local radio station that he would be killed.
