Controversial hiplife artiste Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as A Plus has walked to the Accra High Court Registry to pick up a law suit leveled against him.
The Lawyer of Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Gary Nimako, is reported to have argued in court that efforts to have A-Plus served with the suit proved unsuccessful.
An Accra Labour High Court presided over by Justice Lorenda Owusu, granted an application by lawyers of the Minister for Communications, seeking permission to use the means of substituted service, to serve the popular musician, Kwame Asare Obeng (A-Plus), with the defamation action brought against him by the Minister.
The court after the legal arguments ordered that the applicants are at liberty to post the suit on the Facebook wall of the musician and he will be deemed to have been duly served once the post is done.
However, the “Ab3n b3 bom” hit maker in a post on Facebook yesterday, has announced picking the suit at the court registry.
He wrote, “They told the court that they cannot find me to serve me just to create an impression that I’m running away. So I walked into the court myself today and asked for the summons initially. “
According to him, he was refused the suit when he got to the court. But it was later presented to him after he threatened to go to the media
“I was told there was an order not to give it to me. Then I replied “Anka mɛda ha!!! If you guys don’t give me this summons today I will organize a press conference and tell everybody that they don’t want to serve me because they know they will lose. Finally, I got it,” he said.
A-Plus is said to have accused Ursula Owusu -Ekuful, of being involved in shady deals at the Communications Ministry.
He also accused the Minister of cover up in the 89 million dollar Kelni GVG deal.
The applicant in the defamation suit is seeking an interlocutory injunction to restrain A-Plus from making further defamatory comments about her according to the statement of case filed in court.
The Minister is praying the court for an order directed at A-Plus to retract and apologize.
