Funny Face’s stay in Accra Psychiatric Hospital extended


Funny Face stay at the Accra Psychiatric Hospital has been extended to a month. This was as a request made by the doctor attending to the actor by name Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng.

The prosecutor during court hearing said Dr. Boateng had officially explained in a letter that Funny Face will be unable to appear in court for his case. The reason was that the actor was unfit as he has trouble articulating his thoughts among others.

The doctor in his letter pleaded with the court to increase the number of days he should spend in the hospital.

The court presided by Ebenezer Osei Darko approved of Funny Face’s extended stay at the Accra Psychiatric Hospital as the case has been adjourned to April 1.


The comedic act is in court after he was arrested by the police in Kasoa for unlawfully discharging a firearm at a drinking pub.

The Central Regional Police PRO, DSP Irene Serwaa Oppong said someone had reported Funny Face for causing a disturbance in a bar.

She stated that their investigations reveal the actor had gone to the bar where a misunderstanding ensued between him and the owner. Although the two were separated, Funny Face went home, returned with a gun and fired warning shots.

Adom News’ Kofi Adjei who was in court reported that Funny Face first pleaded guilty to unlawfully discharging a firearm in a public place.

During the first hearing, the judge committed the actor to the psychiatric hospital for two weeks.
