Explaining the reason behind his arrest, Sampson Nyamekye who is a reporter for United Television Ghana (UTV Ghana) said in 2018, Dr.UN was arrested after he presented fake awards to dignitaries at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
His awards were found out to be fake and as a result, was arrested and put behind bars for two weeks. However, he was eventually granted bail in the sum of GHC 20,000 with two guarantors who were his mother and his father.
Kwame Owusu Fordjour a.k.a Dr.UN who was expected to be visiting the court for proceedings to continue failed to do so since 2018 and was on the watch list of the Ghana Police.
The GPS tried several times to smoke him out from his hide out but failed, therefore arrested his parents who were his sureties, and asked that they come to pay for the GHC 20,000 funds because they could not provide him to the Police.
After several years of trying playing hide and seek with the police, Dr. UN was heard on Kumasi-based Hello FM for an interview where the court warrant was sent to him and was arrested.
According reports after his arrest, he tried calling the President of Ghana, because to him he is a diplomat who has to be protected at all times.
