A-Plus prays court to strike out Maurice Ampaw case
The counsel for musician Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as A-Plus, has prayed the Accra High Court hearing the case brought against the musician to strike out the case.
According to a motion filed in the court, Lawyer Gary Nimako Marfo argues that “as a matter of law, the writ of summons discloses no reasonable cause of action against the Defendant/Applicant and same ought to be struck out by the Honorable Court.”
Maurice Ampaw sued A-Plus for comments allegedly made by A-Plus on his Facebook page that described him as ‘dumb’ for his comments on the missing Castro saga.
Maurice Ampaw, the plaintiff, seeks an apology from the musician, an order to restrain him and GHc 1 million cedis in damages but A-Plus’ counsel believes that “the Plaintiff/Respondent has failed to endorse the particulars of the alleged words which he claims are defamatory of him on the writ of summons.”
The musician posted details of the affidavit and motion on his Facebook page telling his fans that they had prayed for the case to be struck out.
The case has been adjourned to November 14, 2014.
