Medikal to appear in court for brandishing gun amid #FreeShattaWale campaign

Award-winning rapper, Medikal is expected to appear in court later Friday, October 22.

He was picked up by officers of the Ghana Police Service on Thursday.

The musician, born Samuel Adu Frimpong, was suspected of brandishing a gun on social media, which landed him in police custody.

According to reports, he was denied police inquiry bail and was detained at the Accra Region Police Command overnight.

Though it is unclear whether the weapon was licensed or not, sources say those details may contribute to the basis of his questioning.

Section 7 of the Arms and Ammunitions Act stipulate that “No person shall, except in accordance with the terms of a permit granted under this Decree or with the written consent of the Inspector-General of Police, publicly display any arms or ammunition (including explosives) or discharge any firearm or other weapon in any public place.

Medikal’s arrest on Thursday came just hours after his industry mate and friend, Shatta Wale, was remanded in police custody for two weeks.
