Medikal was subsequently convicted on his own plea by the court presided over by Mr Emmanuel Essandoh.

Medikal had earlier pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The court was expected to rule on an application filed by Medikal’s lawyers to order the police to release the Ruger nine-millimeter pistol belonging to the musician.

The charges were read out to him and he pleaded guilty to the charges.

Shortly after the case was recalled, Counsel for Medikal, Mr Emmanuel Yeboah Gyan who held Bobby Banson’s brief withdrew their services to the musician.
