An Accra Circuit Court has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Lawrence Abrokwa, the former husband of Afia Schwarzenegger for failing to appear before it.
The court presided over by Mrs. Justice Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku, a High Court judge sitting as an additional Circuit court judge, was expected to deliver its judgement Monday in the case in which Abrokwa was being held on two counts of domestic violence to wit emotional, verbal and psychological abuse, threat of harm, assault, publication of obscene material, carrying offensive weapon, causing unlawful damage and stealing.
Abrokwa at the lasting sitting failed to appear in court and the trial judge adjourned the matter to Monday March 23, 2020.
When the case was called on Monday the accused’s counsel told the court that he has made several calls to the accused but to no avail.
The court, therefore, issued a bench warrant for his arrest and adjourned the matter to April 1.
