It has emerged that the complaint filed against Lawrence Nana Hanson popularly known as Bulldog for which he is standing trial was done by regular viewers of the UTV’s Saturday evening Entertainment programme.
This was revealed by the prosecution in court
The new facts as presented by prosecution were that the complainants in the case are “citizens and regular viewers of UTV programme dubbed, “United Showbiz,” hosted by Nana Ama Agyemang Mcbrown, which is live every Saturday between the hours of 2100 and 1100”.

The prosecution said on January 9, this year, the programme was aired on UTV as usual and the accused was one of the panelists who appeared on the show.
Chief Inspector Apiorsornu said during the programme, the issue of Menzgold was raised and Hanson quickly responded that, “The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo will not finish his four year tenure if he failed to pay Menzgold customers.”
The Prosecution said on January 11, this year, the Police intercepted the said video recording on the face book page of UTV, which attracted many comments from viewers who watched and heard the accused making those “unguided” comments.
