Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng, known in the showbiz circles as Funny Face on Sunday, October 17, 2021 issued invectives on social media against some key entertainment personalities including Fada Dickson and Bola Ray and threatened to kill his ex-lover Vanessa.
He also cast aspersions at former African Footballer of the Year, Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor, one of his close allies until last year. But the police found the threats so grave that the one-time musician was picked up around 10:14pm on Monday, October 18, 2021 and he is being treated as a “suspect”.
“Due to the history of the suspect, the police shall submit Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng to the court for an order for psychiatric examination, to determine the next line of investigative action,” the police statedy.
“The police is committed to protecting lives with the generous help of the public. “We want to assure the public that we shall not take anything for granted in the interest of public safety.”
In February, Funny Face was arrested by the police in Kasoa for discharging a firearm at a pub.
