The host of Zylofon FM’s ‘Showbiz Agenda Show’ and PRO for Zylofon Media, Samuel Atuobi Baah known professionally as Sammy Flex has rebuked Abeiku Santana (who he describes as a senior colleague he has so much respect for) for the manner he handled the Lilwin – Candace saga.
In a short conversation with Zionfelix, Sammy Flex made the point that he feels Abeiku Santana and Lilwin could have used a more flexible way to handle the case rather than the arrest of the female blogger with the handcuffs and the video that was shared all over social media. Sammy stated that in his view, Abeiku Santana, as a senior colleague in the industry could have directed the lady to do the right thing by speaking to her rather than causing her arrest. He further stated that as media practitioners, they have erred a few times and people who may not even be in the profession are the once who have corrected them.
The CEO and Chief editor of award-winning Ghanaian Entertainment newspaper Flex Newspaper also stated that there have been numerous occasions in the country where people who have committed gruesome crimes have been given bail without entering the cell. He, as such questioned why a young lady, whose only crime was to write a false story, will be arrested with handcuffs and placed in the cell even though the criminal libel law has been repelled.
In as much as Sammy Flex condemned Abeiku Santana and Lilwin for the way the handled the case, he advised writers, especially entertainment writers to ensure that the stories they put out there and factual and accurate.
