An Accra Circuit Court has adjourned to October 13, the case involving musician, Ekow Micah, for possessing narcotic drugs without authority.
This follows a plea by the new counsel for the accused, Andy Kudzo Portia, requesting for the court’s records of proceedings and time to have further deliberations with his client.
That, Mr. Portia said, would help him study the case and enable him to represent his client properly.
The prosecutor, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Moses Atibilla, did not object to the request but prayed the court to permit him to introduce the third prosecution witness in the matter before granting the plea of the defendant’s counsel.
However, the court, presided over by Mr. Aboagye Tandoh, denied the prosecution the request and adjourned the case to October 13, to enable the counsel for the accused to study the earlier proceedings.
It would be recalled that at the last sitting, Ekow Micah, who had dismissed his first lawyer, John Dave Percy, prayed the court for some time to engage a new counsel.
The court granted his plea to give him an opportunity to legal representation.
