Shatta Wale and Medikal have finally been granted bail after they were remanded in police custody for a week and five days respectively.
Shatta Wale has been charged with publication of false news after a report that he was shot turned out to be false. On the 18th of October, 2021 news broke that Shatta Wale has been shot and was receiving treatment at an emergency ward.
However, it turned out that the news was false and the ‘dancehall king’ was in hiding. After the police took all measures to find the musician, he finally turned himself in.
Medikal was also arrested for brandishing a gun on social media, and spent a day behind bars at the Accra Regional Police Command office.
He was later denied bail and remanded to police custody for five days.
Facing an Accra Circuit Court today, Shatta Wale has been granted GH100,000 self-recognition bail. His other accomplices in the case, Nana Dope his P.A and two others were also granted bail with sureties.
