An Accra Circuit Court has granted bail in the amount of GHC15,000 with two sureties to Nuhu Sule, the 33-year-old scrap dealer who was arrested for allegedly stealing US rapper, Meek Mill’s phone.
Nuhu Sule, the accused, is being tried for theft in a courtroom presided over by Samuel Bright Acquah. According to the bail conditions, the sureties must be public servants.
He is to reappear on February 6, 2023.
Sule was apprehended at his Accra hideout on Friday, December 30, 2022, a day after Meek Mill tweeted that he had been robbed off his phone.
Meek was in the country for a couple of days to headline the Afro Nation Festival. A day or two after his arrival, the Grammy-nominated rapper shared that he had been pickpocketed off his phone.
“They pick pocketed me for my phoneeeeeee SMH…Bring that Jawn back if you got it!!” Meek wrote in his IG stories.
Meek’s tweet caught a lot attention on social media, and the Ghana Police took to work to help find the culprit.
Meek’s phone was found and returned to him within 24 hours, and the suspect was arrested.
