An Accra circuit court yesterday adjourned to October 5, the case involving Ekow Micah, the musician standing trial for allegedly possessing narcotic drug.
This was after he prayed the court to adjourn the case to enable him to secure the services of another lawyer after he had parted company with his lawyer, John Dave Percy.
He said he had no legal representation and for that matter it would be helpful for his request to be upheld by the court.
Consequently, the court, presided over by Aboagye Tandoh, granted the request and adjourned the case.
At the last sitting on September 25, the prosecutor, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Moses Atibilla, told the court that he had earlier received an information from the erstwhile counsel for the accused that he was no more representing his client in the matter.
“My Lord, I received a call from the lawyer for the accused person and he told me that his client had asked him not to represent him anymore”, he said.
It is recalled that at the court sitting on September 22, Ekow Micah refused to speak through his lawyer as directed by the court and insisted that he would speak for himself for his lawyer had ceased communicating with him, since the September 10 adjournment.
