Allow The Law To Work – Akrobeto

Lilwin and Akrobeto


Actor and comedian, Akrobeto, has reacted to accident case involving fellow actor Lilwin, which tragically resulted in the death of a three-year-old boy, saying the law must take its course.

Speaking on UTV, Akrobeto emphasised that Lilwin’s actions and subsequent fallout do not cast him in a favourable light, and urged that legal processes be followed without bias.

Lilwin, whose real name is Kwadwo Nkansah, was detained by the police on Monday, June 3, 2024, after being discharged from the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. The actor has since been granted bail set at GH¢50,000, with his next court appearance scheduled for June 27, 2024.

The incident took place on May 25, 2024, near Grace Baptist Church in Amakom, Kumasi, when Lilwin’s vehicle collided head-on with another car. The crash resulted in several injuries and the heartbreaking death of a three-year-old child.

Akrobeto commended the Ghana Police Service for their decision to detain Lilwin for questioning, underscoring that the laws of Ghana apply to everyone equally, regardless of their social standing or celebrity status. He urged his fellow celebrities to lead by example and behave in ways that inspire their fans and followers.

“Upon your release from remand, it’s important to make wise decisions because, in Ghana, no one is above the law. We, as public figures, must lead lives that inspire others, avoiding such incidents,” Akrobeto said.

“When you deviate from the right path, the law will intervene without exception. Pastor Owusu Bempah, for instance, was taken into custody and subsequently issued an apology. There have been others who have faced legal consequences for their actions,” he added.

Akrobeto’s remarks serve as a reminder to public figures of the importance of setting a positive example and respecting the laws of the land. The actor’s stance highlights the need for accountability and the impartiality of the legal system in Ghana.
