Medikal Has Been Remanded To Police Custody For Five Days


Ghanaian rapper Samuel Frimpong popularly known as Medikal was in court today after he was arrested for brandishing guns in a provocative manner in a trending social media video.

This was the ruling of a Circuit Court judge in Accra on October 22, 2021, on the artiste’s first appearance in court for brandishing a weapon.

At the hearing on Friday, counsel for the Ghanaian rapper, Emmanuel Yeboah Gyan, prayed the court to grant his client bail as he is a law-abiding citizen and had family on standby to meet the bail conditions.

But the prosecution opposed the plea, arguing that the individual rights of Medikal to bail are subservient to the community interest, which ought to be protected. He further argued that parts of the case are still under investigation.

Presiding Judge, Emmanuel Esandoh, sided with the prosecution and remanded Medikal to the Ankaful prisons in the Central Region for five days.
