    Popular Ghanaian artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, known in social circles as Shatta Wale is expected to reappear in court on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, alongside three other accomplices.  

    He was arrested on October 19, 2021 after he allegedly faked a gunshot attack on him, following a prophecy that indicated he would be killed by armed robbers on the said day.

    Shatta Wale was subsequently remanded to the Ankaful Prison and eventually granted a GHS100,000 self-recognizance bail.

    The artiste has since been charged with the publication of false news and causing fear and panic. His accomplices, Kojo Owusu Koranteng, Idris Yusif and Eric Venator have also been charged with abetment of crime.

    Also expected to appear in court today is popular hiplife artiste, Samuel Frimpong, known in social circles as Medikal. He was arrested after he allegedly brandished a weapon in a video that was widely circulated on social media.

    He has pleaded not guilty to the charge of displaying arms and ammunition.
