An Accra Circuit Court had remanded the dancehall musician for one week after the controversial artiste pleaded not guilty to a charge of publication of false news.
On October 19, the artiste turned himself in after the police had declared him wanted.
He had allegedly fabricated a story that he had been shot and receiving treatment, which turned out to be a hoax.
Three of his accomplices were charged with abetment of crime.
Police in a Facebook post said “they were remanded following a request by the police for their continued detention due to ongoing investigations on their alleged involvement in the publication of false information with the intention to cause fear and panic.”
The self-styled Dancehall King, born Charles Nii Armah Mensah, is expected to reappear in court on October 28, 2021.
