The prosecution in the case of dancehall singer Charles Nii Armah Mensah, also known as Shatta Wale, is hot on the trail of the artiste’s sister.
The purported fake shooting incident was reported to the East Legon Police by Shatta Wale’s sister, according to reports.
Shatta Wale is facing a charge of spreading false information to cause fear and terror.
Three individuals who appeared with him were charged with aiding the dissemination of false news: Kojo Owusu Koranteng, Shatta’s personal assistant, Eric Venator, a graphic designer, and Iddrisu Yussif, a beautician.
They’ve all pled not guilty and been granted GHc100,000 bail apiece, with sureties who must be government employees.
Chief Inspector Dennis Terkpetey, the prosecutor, told the court in court on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, that one more suspect is being pursued.
He asked the court to order the accused persons’ attorneys to present the named suspect in order to assist the police in their investigation.
At this time, Jerry Avenorgbo, counsel for the defendants, requested an in-camera hearing, which was granted.
When the case was recalled, the accused persons’ attorneys asked the court to reschedule the hearing for the last weekend of January.
His customer, he says, will be leading a lot of engagements because of the holiday season.
The case has been delayed to January 25, 2022, by the court presided over by Emmanuel Marvin Essandoh.
Shatta Wale, who is out on a GHC100,000 self-recognizance bond, was in court.
While speaking to the media, Shatta Wale’s lawyer stated that his client will have a lot of obligations during the holiday season and requested that the court grant them a lengthier adjournment.
