Comedian Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng popularly known as Funny Face, who is facing a charge of threat of death is back in court.

The Circuit Court in Accra at the last sitting on November 24, 2021, ordered investigators to release his mobile phone to him.

The order of the Kaneshie District Court presided over by Worship Kofi Oheneba-Kuffour was after the accused person had prayed the court to allow the police to release his phone to him.

According to Funny Face, he had a contract with Lan T Soya Milk which required him to promote their product and needed the phone to do that.

He also told the court of the release of an album titled ‘Aseda’ which will detail all that he has been going through.

Prosecution led by ASP Sylvester Asare told the court that investigations were still ongoing and the phone would be needed to assist them.

The prosecutor also argued that the phone would help them conclude their investigations and serve the accused person with disclosures.

But, the court presided over by His Worship Mr. Kofi Oheneba-Kuffour ordered the release of his phone immediately after his statement was taken.

The court is however due to sit today January 4, 2022 to proceed with the case.

Funny face was previously granted bail in the sum of GHc20, 000 and was to produce two sureties and is to report to the Police twice every week.
