The Kasoa District Court has remanded Ghanaian comedian Funny Face in police custody for two weeks after he hit five pedestrians with his car.

While his counsel pleaded for his bail, the prosecution held that ample time would be needed for further investigations into the matter.

The prosecution pleaded that it would need more time to also conduct a toxicology investigation, as eyewitnesses at the accident scene held that the celebrity was engaged in drunk driving.

The comedian has been charged with reckless driving.

Before the day’s hearing, he was heard expressing his joy that those victims who were hospitalised were in good condition and responding to treatment.

On Sunday, 24 March 2024, the comedian knocked down three pedestrians crossing the Kasoa-Nyanyano Kakraba highway at the Kakraba Junction, causing severe injuries.

He subsequently crashed into two motorcycles, causing injuries to the riders as well.

Though the hearing was heard out of court, the popular comedian was refused bail and remanded for two weeks.

Presently, two of the victims are receiving treatment at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, while two others continue to be catered for at the Mother and Child Hospital in Kasoa.
