Award-winning rapper, Medikal is expected to reappear before court later today.

On Friday, October 22, he was remanded by an Accra Circuit Court for five days in prison custody after he was arrested for brandishing a gun on social media.

The artiste, born Samuel Adu Frimpong, was charged with unlawful display of arms and ammunition to which he pleaded not guilty.

The accused is said to have, on September 26, displayed a Ruger 9mm pistol and posted the video on his Snapchat account without any reasonable excuse.

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.

He was chauffeured away in a police pick-up truck amid a heavy security presence.

Medikal’s arrest came just hours after his industry mate and friend, Shatta Wale, was remanded in police custody for one week.

The self-styled dancehall king was arrested for spreading false news.

He had allegedly fabricated a story on Monday, October 18, that he had been shot and receiving treatment.
