Legendary singer Akosua Agyapong has been granted bail in the sum of Ghc 160,000, with three sureties, by an Accra Circuit Court.
Agyapong is on trial for allegedly defrauding a businessman to the tune of Ghc 105,000 in a land deal gone wrong.
She and her alleged co-conspirator, Frank Agyemang, allegedly sold the land to the businessman without having ownership of it.
At the first court date, Akosua Agyepong was absent due to an alleged medical issue. When the case was called earlier today (Tuesday), it was the same as her lawyer presented a medical report as to why she could not appear.
Her attorney’s application for bail was however granted, with the case adjourned to November 13th.
The case involves Agyapong and one Frank Agyemang, aka Killer Boss, who allegedly sold a parcel of land to the complainant, but he later discovered it belonged to someone else who came to dispute his ownership.
He thus reported the case to the police and both the musician and Killer Boss where picked up.
According to police, the businessman in question approached Akosua Agyapong as he needed land for some business.
She referred him to Agyemang, who showed her a plot of land opposite the West Hills mall. The trio later went to the Lands Commission where ownership of the land was verified to the complainant.
“When the businessman went to work on the land, another person came to claim ownership of the land with original documents. He reported the matter to the police leading to Akosua and Agyemang’s arrest.” Prosecuting officer ASP Agnes Boafo said.
Akosua Agyapong has denied all charges in this case.
