The Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) has denied Fadi Dabboussi, a fierce critic of President John Mhama, access to his lawyer.

The Ghanaian-Lebanese pilot, author of "59 Years to Nowhere" and an ardent supporter of Nana Akufo-Addo, was arrested on Friday at the Kotoka International Airport after a trip from Lebanon.

His lawyer, Hassan Tampuli said he was driven to the BNI headquarters in Accra after he was picked up at the airport.

His home, according to activists who alerted the world about his arrest on social media, was ransacked and copies of his books taken.

“I have been to the office of the BNI and I was denied access to him. I was told the officer responsible for the case was not in the office and that I can only have access to him on Monday,” Tampuli told Joy FM Saturday.

He said his client is a law-abiding citizen, saying he has not broken any law.

The arrest of Fadi Dabboussi comes after president John Mahama addressed the UN General Assembly on Wednesday where he touted the country's media freedom, alluding to the fact that 27 million Ghanaians use the media to coach him how he should govern.
