Medikal denied bail; remanded in prison custody for five days
Rapper Samuel Adu Frimpong, popularly known as Medikal, has been remanded into prisons custody for five days.
This was after the rapper pleaded not guilty to one charge of displaying arms and ammunition.
The court presided over by Justice Emmanuel Essandoh, a High Court judge sitting with additional responsibility as a circuit court judge, remanded the accused person into prisons custody for five days.
Pleading for bail, the lawyer for the accused, Emmanuel Yeboah, argued that his client is well known and lived all his life in the country and will not disobey the court.
According to him, if granted bail he has persons to stand sureties for him including his wife and mother.
The prosecution led by Chief Inspector Dennis Terkpetey while opposing the grant of bail said, the interest of the larger society is what the court must consider.
Counsel Yeboah insisted that there were parts of the case that are still under investigation, therefore, the rapper ought to be remanded.
His wife Fella Makafui and his mother were in tears throughout the court sitting.
