Kwaw Kese refused bill, remanded in prison custody for 2 weeks
A Kumasi Circuit Court, presided over by Mr Justice William Boampong, has remanded musician Kwaw Kese into prison custody for two weeks. The court ordered earlier today that the embattled musician be remanded after being charged with unlawful use of a substance suspected to be marijuana.
Kwaw was arrested over the weekend at a spot close to the popular ‘+2 Pub’ in Nhyiaeso, Kumasi and was arraigned before court today. His counsel,
Nana Kwasi Boaitey, argued that the speculation by the police that the substance was Indian hemp was not enough for court to deny the accused bail. The court has deferred ruling on the bail application to December 8, 2014.
