Medikal Arrested For Brandishing Gun On Social Media

Ghanaian musician, Samuel Adu Frimpong, popularly known as Medikal, has been arrested for brandishing a gun on social media.

According to reports, Medikal was seen at the Accra Regional Police Command charge office this evening with his wife Fella Makafui.

He was brought to the station by police and is currently in police custody.

According to reports, he was denied police inquiry bail and has been detained at the Accra Region Police Command overnight.

Medikal is expected to appear in court later Friday, October 22.

It’s unclear what if he is permitted to use the gun or not however, 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.“

His shocking arrest comes hours after his colleague and close friend Shatta Wale was remanded by the Accra Circuit court following an alleged gun attack.

Medikal, who started the #FreeShattaWale campaign along with his wife, was spotted at the Accra Circuit court today to offer his support to his troubled friend.
