An Accra Circuit Court on Tuesday, October 26, granted the “Omo Ada” hitmaker GHC100,000 bail with one surety.

He is to reappear on November 9, 2021, alongside embattled dancehall musician, Shatta Wale.

The former AMG Business label signee was arrested last week Thursday (October 21) for brandishing a gun on social media, and spent a day behind bars at the Accra Regional Police Command charge office.

He was denied bail on October 22, 2021, and further remanded to police custody for five more days.

The presiding judge of the Accra Circuit Court, Justice Emmanuel Essandoh, ruled that Medikal be sent to the Ankaful Medium Prison for five days. He pleaded not guilty to the charge of displaying firearms and ammunition.

The lead counsel for the rapper, Emmanuel Yeboah Gyan, prayed the court to grant his client bail as he is a law-abiding citizen and had family on standby to meet the bail conditions.

But the prosecution opposed the plea, arguing that the individual rights of Medikal to bail are subservient to the community interest which ought to be protected. He further argued that parts of the case are still under investigation.
