Former Environment, Science, and Innovation Minister Prof. Frimpong Boateng is said to have won a defamation suit against celebrated Radio personality Captain Smart.
In 2019 Prof. Frimpong Boateng sued Captain Smart and one Solomon K. A Owusu for publishing false information about him.
According to the former Minister, Solomon K. A Owusu who is currently out of the country approached him to introduce him to the President of Ghana to help propose easy means of ending the galamsey menace but he refused.
He said after refusing to introduce Solomon to the President, he (Solomon Owusu) started circulating malicious content against him on a whatsapp platform called “kill corruption now” of which Captain Smart is an administrator.
The former Minister said the Solomon in one of his posts said emphatically that he (former Environment Minister) and his son were neck deep into galamsey and that they were aiding Chines nationals to engage in the act.
