Nassau, Bahamas — Orthand Bodie Jr. host of the popular talkshow Real Talk Live on More 94FM was arrested and was detained for questioning by police.
Bahamas Press can confirm Bodie was arrested and taken into custody at the Carmichael Road police station following statements police say was a threat to NATIONAL SECURITY!
Some 12 officers of the Central Detective Unit surrounded the More 94FM studios and ordered Bodie to get into the car. Bodie was search and his home was ransacked as police made a careful search of his property. BP can confirm the incident brought Bodie to tears as he accepted his comments on air were irresponsible and was an outright LIE!
Last week while on air Bodie called for Bahamas Press to be sued and for all our editors to be thrown into the slammer. His threat to us backfired, and we were sorry for him when we got the news he was in the “BIG PLACE“. BP immediately raised our terror alert to orange as we have become concerned with democracy in The Bahamas. All of a sudden when Editors are not getting fired Broadcasters are being hauled before police for questioning, something must be wrong with this picture unfolding in the country.
However, we know today all is well with Bodie and today he has wiped away his tears and is back on the air.
And while police told us they held Bodie for questioning we find this ordeal incredible. When Peter Carey was bringing in residents of the US into Nassau on the Sunday before the Elizabeth by-election to vote in the Elizabeth by-election, NOT ONE OFFICER arrested him.
Bahamas Press has evidence of this crime orchestrated by high–ranking officials in the Ingraham Government. And will report details to BP readers shortly.
