An Accra Circuit Court has remanded dancehall musician, Shatta Wale for one week in police custody.
The controversial artiste, today, 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.
Two of his accomplices were charged with abetment of crime.
Police in a Facebook post says “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.
The court premises saw a mob of fans and sympathisers alike who wanted to catch glimpse of the artiste.
Some of the personalities present included Bulldog, Jupitar, Medikal, Captan among others.
Meanwhile, the Police Service has advised citizens against publishing false information capable of disturbing the country’s peace.
