The camera crew of Clarence Peters was robbed in Ghana on Tuesday, (May, 23). And the award-winning director is presently offering a reward of ten-thousand-dollars to anyone who finds the culprit or has information that could lead to their apprehension.
Clarence’s crew had equipment worth $60,000 (N11,941,200), stolen from them while in the country for a music video shoot for Stonebwoy, Patoranking and VVIP’s Reggie Rockstone.
Reggie Rockstone confirmed the thievery during a radio interview on Accra-based station, Radio Gold, while tagging the incident ‘unfortunate’ and ‘a big disgrace’ to Ghana.
Clarence brought his own camera crew, whom he has been working with for years and he stayed at Alysa Hotel during the video shoot.
On Tuesday night by 2:00 am we saw the CCTV footage of a young man neatly dressed, he walked into the room and picked up the bag (of equipment) and walked out.
I mean, this is the creepiest thing with people still sleeping in the room.
Now the footage is not too clear and we don’t know what happened in the room.
Rockstone’s statement must have had a negative effect on Alysa Hotel as he later tweeted on Friday, (May, 27), “Bloggers, kindly get this story right! Clarence Peters stayed at Alysa Hotel and was not robbed there. His crew got robbed at a guesthouse.”
Rockstone’s radio interview and tweet are contradictory as his statement, “he ie Clarence Peters stayed at Alysa Hotel during the video shoot…… we saw the CCTV footage of a young man neatly dressed, he walked into the room and picked up the bag”, has caused some to speculate on the true location the robbery occurred.
Neither Clarence, Patoranking nor Reggie has responded further, although, they’ve listed the missing items and alerted Ghana airport officials who are on the lookout for anyone boarding a flight which gadgets such as, a Mac Book Pro Retina display, a couple other drives, an Ipad Air and an Infinix hot note x551 phone.
Meanwhile, in a related case, Kanye West also got robbed on the same day, and the thief might be someone who loves Kanye as Kanye loves Kanye. A bunch of gear from his creative studio had been stolen and it looked like an inside job.
Police reports confirmed a burglary call was received from Kanye’s office in Calabasas on Tuesday, (May, 23).
Officers said a door had been pried open and equipment totaling around $20,000 (N3,980,400), had been stolen.
Unlike Clarence, sources from Kanye said the gear has already been replaced and nothing was compromised.
