An Accra Circuit Court has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Lawrence Abrokwa, the ex-husband of Afia Schwarzenegger, known in real life as Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa.
The warrant became necessary as Abrokea failed to appear before the court on Monday, March 23, 2020, for judgment to be delivered.
He was also said to have failed to appear in court at the last sitting before the adjournment of the case to March 23.
Abrokwa was being held on two counts of domestic violence - emotional, verbal and psychological abuse, the threat of harm, assault, the publication of obscene material, carrying an offensive weapon, causing unlawful damage and stealing.
The case was presided over by Mrs. Justice Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku, a High Court judge sitting as an additional Circuit court judge.
When the case was called on Monday Abrokwa’s counsel told the court that he has made several calls to the accused but to no avail.
The court, therefore, issued a bench warrant for his arrest and adjourned the matter to April 1.
Abrokwa and Afia were married until things started falling apart in 2017.
He thus packed his things and left their home in Dome for Dansoman.
However, on August 29, 2017, Afia’s house help was said to have informed Abrokwa that Afia had brought another man into their home.
Abrokwa then stormed the house with a substance contained in a bottle which he claimed to be acid.
However, the prosecutor told the press that the substance was taken to the Ghana Standard Authority for testing during investigations and it was found to be water.
