Lawrence Asiamah Hanson aka Bull Dog Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Bull Haus entertainment and manager of popular dancehall artiste Shatta Wale appeared in court this morning in connection with the murder of the late Fennec Okyere.
The Accra Central Magistrate Court presided over by Her Worship Mavis Nyamaa Quanoo has adjourned hearing of the case involving Lawrence Nana Asiama Hanson also known as Bulldog and the state to June 2, 2014.
After the most anticipated court hearing this morning, Bulldog has been remanded in police custody for two weeks to enable the police conduct further investigations into the murder of Emmanuel Fennec Okyere.
This followed an argument from the prosecution that they needed more time to conduct further investigations into the case. However, leading Lawyer for Bulldog, Gary Nimako rejected calls for his client to be remanded in police custody.
He argued that the charges leveled against his client (Bulldog) – conspiracy to commit murder and committing murder cannot hold because the prosecution has not been able to link his client to Fennec’s murder.
Bulldog was arrested in public on Thursday afternoon May 15 in Kokomlemle, a suburb of Accra, as a prime suspect in the death of Fennec Okyere.
Bulldog, who has been accused for conspiracy in the murder of Fennec Okyere, the Manager of the controversial hiplife artiste, Kwaw Kesse, alias Abodam, looked well composed and told well-wishers, friends and family present in court to keep calm and that everything will be fine.
Some of the familiar faces present in court this morning includes two members of newly reconstituted Hiplife group VVIP –Reggie Rockstone and Zeal (Formerly known as Lazzy), Bulldog’s father Mr. Hanson, Mr. Mensah father of dancehall artiste Shatta Wale among others.
