Medikal caged for 5 days
Ghanaian Rapper Medikal has been remanded into prison custody for 5 days after the bail application by his lawyer was rejected.
Hiplife Vocalist Medikal was remanded into prison custody by the court upon his first court appearance for displaying a firearm via online media.
He argued not liable to the charge of showing arms and ammunition.
Medikal’s Legal Counsel Emmanuel Yeboah had contended that his client is notable and spent his entire life in the Ghana and was not a flight hazard when allowed bail.
Nonetheless, the indictment led by Chief Inspector Dennis Terkpetey while kicking against the award of bail said, the interest of the bigger society is the thing that the court should consider.
He contended that there is a part of the case that is as yet being scrutinized and, along these lines, the performer should be remanded.
Producing judge, Justice Emmanuel Essandoh of the High Court who sat with extra obligation as a circuit court judge remanded Medikal into prison custody.
Medikal will spend the next 5 days and reappear in court. He becomes the second musician but accused person whose bail application was shot down after Dancehall Artiste Shatta Wale who has been caged at Ankaful Prison.
