Media icon, Kwesi Kyei Darkwa affectionately called KKD is expected to appear before an Accra court today, December 30.
[contextly_sidebar id=”rlgd8jTbQzFAh7Fco0236xzTtrnfkraA”]He was unable to make his first appearance in court on Monday due to delays on the part of the Police.
The Police are however eager to beat the 48-hour limit of detaining a suspect in a criminal case.
KKD was arrested on Saturday night at the African Regent Hotel for alleged indecent assault of a 19-year-old girl.
His Counsel, Nana Asante Bediatuo earlier dismissed the claims with an explanation that his client had “consensual sex” with the complainant.
Nana Asante Bediatuo is however optimistic that his client will be granted bail today stating that looking at the “circumstances of this case, there is a strong likelihood that he will be granted bail.”
In a related development, family members of KKD say they suspect foul play in the arrest of their son.
A family member who spoke to Citi News on condition of anonymity disclosed that the complainant was forced to press charges against KKD by a third party adding that “we think it is a case of blackmail because what will a 19-year-old girl be doing with a 50 year old guy in a hotel room. Why did she follow him to the hotel room in the first place. It saw some boys who came to make the first complaint and the police told them to bring the lady.”
