Court orders Funny Face to seek psychiatric help for two weeks


The Ofaakor circuit court, presided over by Justice Ebenezer Osei Darko, on Monday, 15 February 2021, ordered the Ghana police service to send comic actor, Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng, popularly known as Funny Face, to a psychiatric hospital for evaluation for a two-week period.

According to the court, Funny Face must be sent to the Accra Psychiatric Hospital because “he does not sound normal” and “may be having a mental crisis and possibly going through depression”.

Funny Face was arrested and detained by the police at Kasoa in the Central Region for unlawfully discharging a weapon on Monday, 8 February 2021.

He was released days after, and has since been on an attacking spree with the police and other celebrities being his target on social media.

In his rants, Funny Face accused the police of manhandling him while in custody.

He also lashed out at his fellow showbiz celebrities for not speaking about how he was abused.

Funny Face was allegedly re-arrested on Sunday and arraigned court.
