An editor at Peace FM, Yaw Obeng Manu, was also later arrested and charged for the same offences.
The case, which was filed on Friday morning, was surprisingly withdrawn by the state prosecutors at 1:30 pm when it was called.
Justice Afia Asare Botwe discharged the three journalists striking out the case as withdrawn.
Lawyer for Emmanuel Adjarfo, Samson Lardi Anyenini says this confirms his position that his client had not committed any crime.
