The Kaneshie District Court has adjourned the case of Benson Nana Yaw Oduro, popularly known as Funny Face, to 25 April 2022.
The adjournment was because of the absence of the trial judge, Oheneba Kuffour, who is said to be attending a professional course.
The comedian was accused of threatening to kill his ‘baby mama’ and threatening to commit suicide afterwards.
Funny Face has since been charged with the threat of death.
The court reserved his plea.
He is currently on a ₵20,000 bail with two sureties and is to report to the police twice a week.
The 40-year-old comedian has undergone psychiatric examination as ordered by the court.
On Monday, 19 October 2021, Funny Face was arrested for allegedly threatening some people on social media.
His erratic behaviours over the last few years have been well documented. The series of unfortunate public events began after it was reported a few years ago that his marriage had collapsed.
The comedian often alludes to having suffered in life and has picked up feuds with some personalities, some of whom have exchanged words via social media with him. This list includes actor Kwadwo “Lil Win” Nkansah.
He has often threatened violence against former partners as well as against some personalities in the entertainment industry.
Funny Face’s family troubles also led him to be confined at the Accra Psychiatric Hospital sometime in 2021, after a court ruling.
The court also extended his stay at the mental health facility when the doctor attending to the actor recommended that he needed some more time to go through the treatment.
The comedian was again in court after the police in Kasoa arrested him for unlawfully discharging a firearm at a drinking pub.
According to the Central Regional Police PRO, DSP Irene Serwaa Oppong, Funny Face was reported for causing a disturbance in a pub.
She stated that their investigations revealed the actor had gone to the pub where a misunderstanding ensued between him and the owner.
