The court also charged the accused to produce two sureties, of which one must be a public officer who earns nothing less than GHC1,000.
The 24-year-old security man is facing a charge of an assault on a public officer as well as False Communication, contrary to Section 76(1) of the Electronic Communication Act, 2008 (Act 775).
He used social media to incite arson against President Akufo-Addo.
The young man, however, denied the offences.
When Ghana started recording cases of the novel Coronavirus, President Akufo-Addo announced restrictions in the movement of people in Greater Accra, Kumasi, Tema, and Kasoa because these areas have started seeing an increase in cases.
Bless Amedegbe shot a video of himself and circulated via YouTube and WhatsApp Platforms, inciting the public to defy the President’s Executive Orders on the lockdown.
The police followed up and arrested him, leading to his prosecution.
