The popular actor and comedian, Kofi Adu, other wise known as Agya Koo, has been granted bail to the tune of 20,000 Ghana cedis with two sureties.
Agya Koo, who appeared before an Accra Circuit Court Monday, is facing charges of conspiracy to commit crime, to wit, migrant smuggling, and defrauding by false pretenses.
A member of his legal team, Nkrabeah Effah Darteh appealed to the judge to grant his client bail since the charges do not involve murder nor narcotics.
Agya Koo reported himself to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service at 10 a.m. Friday, January 18, 20I3 but the actor was arrested and placed in police custody until Monday.
A report of fraud had been made against the suspect by Mr Kwarteng, who alleged that the comedian had taken GHc3,800 from him on the pretext of helping him travel to the United States of America (USA).
Following a Daily Graphic publication on the case last Friday, 13 more people have reported to the police that each of them has been defrauded of $1,850 by the popular Ghanaian actor and comedian under the pretext of securing United States of America (USA) visas for them.
He is expected to reappear before the court on Tuesday, January 22.
