GHANA’S REGGAE STAR EKOW MICAH, ACQUITTED OF POSSESSION CHARGE!

Ekow Micah—

Reggae musician Ekow Micah has been acquitted and discharged by an Accra Circuit Court.

Micah was being tried for possessing a quantity of dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp during a search in his house over an extortion case.

The case has been ongoing for some weeks now, but the presiding judge Aboagye Tandoh freed him on Monday for lack of evidence.

“Justice has been done and I’m happy. I’m so elated,” his lawyer Andrew Vortia told the media after the case.

He was arrested on August 4 by the Airport Police over an alleged extortion case which is still pending in court.

Background

Micah denied the charge of possessing narcotic drugs without lawful authority, and was on remand.

Narrating the facts of the case earlier, ACP Atibillah said on August 4 Micah was arrested by the Airport Police over an alleged extortion case currently under investigation.

ACP Atibillah said the following day, at about 1130 hours, the police and the accused person visited Micah’s house to conduct a search and in the process, a quantity of dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp was found concealed in Micah’s “back pack”.

The prosecution said the exhibit was sent to the Police Forensic Crime Laboratory for examination.
