Reports that reached NEWS-ONE Sunday afternoon said the offices of Afra Marley, one of Ghana’s prolific movie editors, at Taifa, a suburb of Accra, was broken into by armed robbers and robbed at a gunpoint.
The indecent took place weeks ago and the police are yet to smoke out the culprits as investigations are still ongoing.
The robbers managed to make away with equipment bearing movies of some producers, sources alleged.
“They made away with about six hard drives and some personal computers which has unedited films belonging to producers. Hajia of Silverline films had her entire movie on it and they have stolen it. But she is lucky that she has backup because she used tape. Director Frank Rajah has two movies with Afra and he recorded on card so he has no back up. I guess he has to shoot again, not the entire movies though,” a source told NEWS-ONE.
The source was not clear on why the editor had not made noise about the incident.
Currently, Afra is described as Ghana’s reining movie editor. He picked an award at the last ZAFAA awards and also received a number of nominations at the African Movie Academy Awards in Nigeria.
Movies as ‘Sin of the Soul’, ‘The Game’, ‘Somewhere In Africa’ and ‘Why Marry’ all passed through his editing bench.
