Ghanaian actress Emilia Brobbey who was deported from England for allegedly shoplifting has denied the story as false.
She was met at the airport by many colleague actors who came to support her, chanting songs of victory on her arrival.
She said in a televised press briefing that she had been wrongfully represented in the press. She said the incident happened when a bracelet accidentally fell into her baby carriage without knowing it until the alarm beeped when she was about leaving the shop, to signify that she had on her items that had not been paid for.
She said she explained to the security and even paid for it when the shop attendant asked if she wanted to keep the bracelet. She hinted that she was pursued later by police after she had given her address because she was perceived to be in the country illegally.
