Was President Mahama Stoned?

The season of blasphemy and rumor mongering is here. So many allegations and fake statements will be made against opposing parties to tag them as either being violent, corrupt, criminal, or unfit to govern this country. And the alleged pelting of stones at president Mahama and his convoy was just one of those plays.

Apparently, someone had a dream that the president was pelted with stones because he was at the New Patriotic Party's (NPP) stronghold. And some media stations, without doing any checks to confirm the truth or otherwise of this fake story, picked it up and started spinning it.

It was later revealed that the people were arrested only for the regional minister of the Ashanti region, an appointee of the president, upon hearing the story, dismissed it outright. He even said nothing of the sort happened.
