Wisa declared wanted by Accra Circuit Court Judge

A bench warrant for the arrest of musician Eugene Ashie, popularly known as Wisa has been issued by Accra Circuit Court for his failure to appear in court on Monday.



He is standing trial for allegedly showing his manhood during a live performance on December 24, 2015, during the ‘Decemba 2 Rememba’ concert at the Accra International Conference Centre.



Wisa was released on GH¢8,000 bail with one surety.


But Jerry Avenorgbor, Wisa’s lawyer told the Accra Circuit Court sitting  judge on Monday, June 27,  that he doesn’t know the where about of his client and he can’t trace him.

According to her worship Abena Oppong, he needs to be produced in court on July 13, 2016.



This is the second bench warrant issued against the musician.
In February this year the judge called for Wisa’s arrest when the musician, his lawyer and manager failed to appear before the court for the trial when the prosecutor and the investigator were ready for the hearing.

A repeat absence of the accused person thwarted plans of the prosecution to show the offensive video to the court.

The judge had at the previous sitting ordered the prosecution to bring the equipment required to play the video to the court.
