Rapper Samuel Adu Frimpong, popularly known as Medikal, has been convicted by the Accra Circuit Court.

This was after the rapper pledged guilty to the charge of unlawful public display of arms.

The court presided by His Lordship Emmanuel Essandoh after the guilty plea sentenced Medikal to 300 penalty units. This amounts to ¢3,600.

Meanwhile, if the rapper fails to pay the fine, he will serve nine months in jail.

The police arrested the musician for brandishing a gun in a video posted on social media in September 2021. He was later charged for unlawful display of arms and ammunition.

Medikal had initially pleaded not guilty to the charge when he made his first appearances in court, but the court refused him bail.

The ‘Omo Ada’ rapper was remanded into police custody for five days. When he reappeared before the court on October 26, the adjudicator granted him a ¢100,000 bail.

The case was then adjourned to January 25, 2022.

On his appearance in court after that, the Defense Counsel for Medikal prayed the Circuit Court to release the Musician’s Ruger 9mm pistol confiscated by the Police after it was displayed on social media.

According to reports, the prosecution had attempted to oppose Medikal’s guilty plea explaining to the court that they did not know the rapper would change his not guilty plea.

But, the judge who opposed the police’s stance noted that the prosecution did not need to be informed.
