Accra Circuit Court has rescinded its bench warrant issued today (Tuesday) for the arrest of Hiplife artiste Eugene Ashie popularly known as Wisa Greid.
The court presided over by Abena Agyin Doku was forced to give the order for his arrest after the musician was absent in court at the beginning of proceedings.
However his lawyer Jerry Avenorgbor, rushed to court to apologize on behalf of musician and pleaded with the Judge to rescind the decision.
The Judge Abena Agyin Doku granted the plea, but cautioned the musician not to be late or absent in court even if his lawyer is not around, adding that such acts amounts to disrespecting the court.
This is not the first time the court has issued a bench warrant for Wisa’s arrest. On February 5, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest after he was absent in court.
The case has been adjourned to April 7.
