- Maurice Ampaw, lawyer for Lawrence Abrokwah, prayed the court to grant bail due to his client's willingness to help with investigations
YEN.com.gh can confirm that the ex-husband of Ghanaian comedianne, TV and radio host, Valentina Nana Agyeiwaa better known as Afia Schwarzenegger, has been granted bailed with three sureties.
Mr Lawrence Abrokwah was on Monday, 25 September, granted bail to the tune of GHS20,000.
The now-estranged husband of Afia Schwarzenegger is facing five charges based on allegations from the comedianne.
The charges include, domestic violence with emotional, verbal and psychological abuse, publication of obscene material, assault and threat of harm.
Lawyer for the accused, Maurice Ampaw, asked the court to grant Abrokwah bail on the basis that he turned himself into the police and has indicated his willingness to aid with investigations.
Before adjourning the case to October 11, 2017, the presiding judge, Mrs. Jane Harriet Akweley Quaye, warned that both parties should desist from speaking to the media about the case as the court sits on the issue.
About 3 weeks ago, a video showing Afia Schwarzenegger in bed with an unknown man as Lawrence Abrokwah is reportedly heard threatening to pour acid on the celebrity.
