The Circuit Court in Accra has ordered investigators to release the mobile phone belonging to the Ghanaian comic actor, Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng, well known as Funny Face.
This comes shortly after the actor was granted a GHc20,000 bail following his arrest for threatening the lives of his baby mama, Vanessa as well as some of his colleagues in the entertainment industry. He was remanded into the Accra Psychiatric hospital for mental re-examination after he was allegedly diagnosed with bipolar.
Well, the order came after the accused person requested that the police release his phone, which was granted by the Kaneshie District Court, presided over by His Worship Kofi Oheneba-Kuffour.
Funny Face told the court of a contract he has with Lan T Soya Milk which requires him to promote their product and he will need the phone to do that. He also told the court that he will release an album called “Aseda” that will describe everything he has been through and will benefit society as a whole.
However, the prosecutor led by ASP Sylvester Asare argued that the mobile phone will assist them with their ongoing investigations about the offenses of the actor and also serve the accused person with disclosures.
But, His Worship Kofi Oheneba-Kuffour stated that the actor’s mobile phone must be immediately released to him in order for him to carry out his dealings. Funny Face promised to only publish positive things on his social media and sounded very convincing on the account that he was looking very fit.
Meanwhile, his case has been adjourned to January 4th, 2022.
