The Accra Circuit Court has found rapper Samuel Adu Frimpong, also known as Medikal, guilty of displaying arms and ammunition.
Medikal was found guilty after telling the court that he wanted to switch his not guilty plea to guilty.
The ‘Omo Ada’ hitmaker was remanded into police custody for five days. When he reappeared before the court on October 26, the adjudicator granted him a ¢100,000 bail.
The case was then adjourned to January 25, 2022.
On his appearance in court after that, the Defense Counsel for Medikal prayed the Circuit Court to release the Musician’s Ruger 9mm pistol confiscated by the Police after it was displayed on social media.
According to reports, the prosecution had attempted to oppose Medikal’s guilty plea explaining to the court that they did not know the rapper would change his not guilty plea.
But, the judge who opposed the police’s stance noted that the prosecution did not need to be informed.
