Shatta Wale, Medikal
The Accra Circuit Court has adjourned the case of Reggae/Dancehall musician, Shatta Wale, and industry mate Medikal, and the three accomplices of the dancehall artiste to January 25, 2022.
Lawyers for the accused persons during the court hearing pleaded with the court to give their clients some time since it was drawing near to the festive season so they can spend time with their families.
Judge Emmanuel Essando who was the presiding judge for the case adjourned the case after listening to their lawyers and asked the court to chase one additional person who is yet to be arrested by the police.
The self-acclaimed dancehall king, born Charles Nii Armah Mensah on October 19, turned himself in after the police had declared him wanted for allegedly fabricating a story that he had been shot and receiving treatment, which turned out to be a prank.
In the case of Medikal, he was arrested for brandishing a weapon on social media. The rapper born, Samuel Adu Frimpong, was charged for unlawful display of arms and ammunition.
Although the duo pleaded not guilty to their respective charges when they made their first appearances in court, the court refused them bail.
Shatta Wale was remanded into prison custody for one week, while his industry mate, Medikal, was in police custody for five days.
But on when they reappeared before the court on Tuesday, October 26, the adjudicator granted them a ¢100,000 bail each.
