Rapper Samuel Adu Frimpong popularly known as Medikal has been remanded into prison custody for the next five days.
This was after the rapper pleaded not guilty to the charge of displaying arms and ammunition when he appeared in the court presided over by Justice Emmanuel Essandoh, a High Court judge sitting with additional responsibility as a circuit court judge.
Lawyer for the accused Emmanuel Yeboah had 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.
He argued that there is an aspect of the case that is still under investigation and ought to be remanded.
EIB Network’s Court Correspondent Murtala Inusah reports his wife Fella Makafui and his mother were in tears throughout the court sitting.
