An Accra Circuit Court has fixed January 22, next year to rule on a submission of no case filed on behalf of Eugene Ashe, aka Wisa, a Hiplife Artiste, who has been accused of displaying his manhood during a performance.
Prosecution after calling witnesses closed its case before the court.
However, the lawyer for Wisa, Jerry Avernogbor has filed a submission of no case.
According to Mr Avernogbor, the prosecution for the past one year had not been able to present any substantial prosecution witness to collaborate their case against his client.
The state indicated to the court that they intend to respond to the submission of no case.
GNA’s investigations revealed that the state had not yet filed its response. However, when the case was called, the court gave a date to rule the submission of no case.
Wisa, of the Ekikimi fame, is being held for allegedly exposing his penis while performing at the Accra International Conference Centre on December 24, 2015.
He has, however, denied a charge of gross indecent exposure and is on a GH¢8,000.00 bail with one surety.
The prosecution said on December 25, 2015, the Accra Regional Police was alerted over a nude video posted on the Internet from an unknown source, in which Wisa intentionally exposed his penis while performing live on stage.
According to the prosecutor, Detective Inspector Judith B. Asante said the Police contacted the managers of Ashe to produce him at the Regional Police Headquarters for investigations, which they did.
The prosecution said investigations into the matter disclosed that on December 24, Airtel Communications Company and Citi FM, an Accra-based radio station, organised an event dubbed: “December to Remember,” which included the accused as a guest artiste.
In the course of the show, the accused, while dancing with a female dancer identified as Monica Kumadeh, suddenly removed his penis out of his pair of jeans and began to caress the buttocks of the dancer.
