Lawyer for the accused, Emmanuel Yeboah Ghana had argued that his client is well known and has lived all his life in the country and will not disobey the court.

According to him, if granted bail he had 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 he ought to be remanded.

This means Medikal will join dancehall artiste Shatta Wale, who has been remanded into prison custody for one week, at the same correctional facility pending their next court appearances.
