Kwaw Kesse aka Abodam
THE KMA Circuit Court yesterday adjourned the Kwaw Kesse case to February 5, 2015 to enable the musician to seek proper medical treatment.
The court accepted Kwaw Kesse’s lawyer, Nana Kwasi Boaitey’s appeal for adjournment of the case due to the poor health of his client.
William Boampong, the presiding judge, consequently adjourned hearing of the case to February 5 to allow for a month’s medical care for the musician.
Kwaw Kesse, known in music circles as ‘Abodam’, is standing trial for a narcotics-related offence.
This followed his apprehension by the police in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital, for smoking a substance believed to be cannabis in a public place.
He had been remanded into prison custody by the court on several occasions until he was granted bail on health grounds recently.
Nana Kwasi Boaitey told the court yesterday that his client’s health condition had not improved so he needed more time to seek medical treatment.
He stated that the prosecution team had agreed with the defence team for the hearing of the case to be adjourned.
When asked about the veracity of Abodam lawyer’s claim, Supt Emmanuel Akunnor, the prosecutor, said he agreed that the case be adjourned.
According to him, aside Abodam’s poor health, the prosecution team was not ready for the hearing of the case yesterday.
For the first time since Abodam was arrested, a few people thronged the court premises, perhaps an indication that people had lost interest in the case.
