Lawyer Ampaw, A-Plus, Withdraw Court Case


Multi-talented Ghanaian satirist, A-Plus, and Lawyer Maurice Ampaw have both confirmed speculations that they have decided to end their legal battle in court and make peace with each other.

Lawyer Ampaw recently went to court, claiming A-Plus had made defamatory comments about him and was therefore demanding an amount of GH¢1 million as damages from the latter so as to send warning signals to persons he claims want to run him down.

A-Plus, in response, decided to fight the case in court and vowed to embarrass the lawyer.

The case attracted a huge media interest and was first called on November 3 and adjourned to November 14, 2014. But even before the adjourned date, myjoyonline.com is quoting Lawyer Ampaw to have said he was withdrawing the case.

The news site said A-Plus and Lawyer Ampaw met at a party held at the Aviation Social Centre in Accra over the weekend, where they talked things over and decided to call a truce.

Lawyer Ampaw was reported to have said: ‘I’m so excited to meet A-Plus in person; I’ve never met him before. I love him so much and I think that in everything that happens you have to give thanks to God. If this had not come, I don’t think that I would have had the opportunity to have a very [important] interaction with A-Plus and I think that it is better for us, it is better for the country that brothers will try to patch up any differences.

‘Actually I have decided to withdraw the case from court and be a brother to A-Plus and maybe something good will come out of this relationship. This should end the matter,’ Ampaw stated.

He said his decision to withdraw the matter from court was because of the healthy relationship he has with A-Plus’ lawyer, Gary Nimako Marfo, and the musician’s explanations.

A-Plus was also quoted to have said: ‘The best thing we can do as men is when you have issues with somebody, especially somebody who is older than you, and he takes the initiative to try and sort it, you don’t want to go into who was right and who was wrong.’
