Medikal Sentenced To Jail, Fined GHC3,600 For Brandishing Gun In Public

Ghanaian rapper, Samuel Adu Frimpong famed as Medikal has been convicted after pleading guilty for brandishing gun in public.

The multiple award-winning musician was convicted after he openly told the court he wants to change his not guilty plea to guilty.

In a report filed by EIB Network’s Court Correspondent Murtala Inusah, his plea was retaken and he admitted the offence.

The Court presided over by His Honour Emmanuel Essandoh has stood the case down for sentencing.

The La Hustle singer has been fined GHC3,600 and 9-months in prison on Monday, February 21 2022.

The court was expected to rule on an application filed by Medikal’s lawyers to order the police to release the Ruger nine-millimeter pistol belonging to the musician.

However, when the case was called Monday morning [Feb 21, 2022], Medikal told the court that he wanted to change his plea.

The charges were read out to him and he pleaded guilty to the charges.

Shortly after the case was recalled, Counsel for Medikal, Mr Emmanuel Yeboah Gyan who held Bobby Banson’s brief withdrew their services to the musician.
