Kumawood Actress Arrested For Assaulting Gospel Musician

Nayas, the Kumawood actress at the centre of an assault case involving Ernest Opoku at Adom FM‘s studios, was allegedly arrested by the District Command of the Nima Police in Accra on Tuesday.

She was reportedly charged with unlawful entry after going to the premises of Adom FM to attack the musician.

According to police sources, she was also granted bail on Tuesday.

However, the acting District Commander of the Nima Police didn’t respond to calls by NEWS-ONE to confirm the arrest.

Nayas, born Gladys Mensah Boaku, allegedly entered the studios of the station during a live worship programme with canes to attack the musician.

The actress, who had earlier taken to the media to narrate her sexual encounter with the gospel musician, is angry with Ernest Opoku for admitting in a previous interview of making a mistake by having an affair with her, which resulted in a pregnancy.

A video of the ‘nasty’ encounter has been in circulation since Monday on most online platforms.

In the video, several people were gathered at the forecourt of The Multimedia Group, owners of Adom FM, trying to calm down Nayas. She could be seen making wild gestures.

Efforts to speak with both Ernest Opoku and Nayas on Tuesday afternoon proved futile. Ernest’s contact wasn’t going through while Nayas didn’t also pick her calls.

A report by Myjoyonline indicated that Ernest Opoku and host of Adom FM’s Live Worship, Kwamena Idan, filed a formal complaint against Nayas at the Nima Police Station.

They filed the complaint on Monday, and the police have commenced investigations into the issue.

The actress was arrested on Tuesday. She is expected to report at the Nima Police Station today.

Meanwhile, Ernest Opoku has registered his displeasure with security personnel at The Multimedia Group.

Speaking with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM on Tuesday, the renowned gospel artiste revealed that he is disappointed in security officers for failing to provide security for him.

“I know what Multimedia has done for some gospel artistes like myself so I don’t charge for any live worship event I attend at the reputable media firm but what happened to me yesterday was such disappointing and unpleasant,” he narrated.

“I was in the studio of Adom FM when the girl rushed in. I was even making a call and couldn’t see the lady walk in. I only realised she was present in the studio when she started lashing me severally but I didn’t retaliate. Multimedia was unable to protect me when the lady budged in the studio. If Nayas should have come with a gun or an acid, I would have been dead by now,” Ernest Opoku added.

He continued, “If Multimedia doesn’t take responsibility of this case I will be disappointed in them. Multimedia didn’t protect me… I give everything to God. Ghanaians should watch her pregnancy carefully since she said she is pregnant for three months. I won’t lay my hands on her but I leave everything to God.”

But Kwamena Idan said the actress had “lied” to the front desk executive that she was part of the backing vocalists for Ernest, hence she was allowed into the studios.
