The musician changed his plea and pleaded guilty to the charge, on Monday morning.

Medikal was earlier convicted on his own plea by the court presided over by Mr Emmanuel Essandoh after he pleaded not guilty to the charge in the early stages of the case.

The court was expected to rule on an application filed by Medikal’s lawyers to order the police to release the musician's Ruger nine-millimeter pistol.

However, when the case was called Monday, February 21, the Stubborn Academy hitmaker told the court that he wanted to change his plea.

The charges were then read out to him and he pleaded guilty to them.
