Rapper Samuel Adu Frimpong, better known as Medikal, has petitioned the Accra Circuit Court to order the police to release his gun.
The rapper, who has pleaded not guilty to one count of displaying arms and ammunition, was arraigned for the first time on October 21.
On Tuesday, January 25, 2022, Medikal’s counsel, Alice Nimako Debrah Ablormeti, holding brief for the substantive lawyer, told the court that they had not been served with the processes and disclosures necessary to mount a proper defence.
She also asked the court to issue an order directing the police to release the gun to him.
The Prosecutor, Chief Inspector Dennis Terkpetey, asked the court for an extension of time to file processes, disclosures, and witness statements and serve them on the accused.
The court, presided over by His Honour Emmanuel Essandoh, has directed lawyers to prepare a formal application for the gun’s release.
The request for the extension of time for the prosecution to file their processes was also granted.
The case has been rescheduled for February 15, 2022.
