The Ofankor court has committed comedian Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng to the psychiatric hospital for two weeks.
The Ofaakor Circuit Court presided by Ebenezer Osei Darko has ordered Ghana Police to send Funny Face to Accra Psychiatric Hospital explaining that he does not sound normal.
The judge said Funny Face may be having a mental crisis and possibly going through depression.
Last Monday, the comedic act was arrested by the police in Kasoa for unlawfully discharging a firearm at a drinking pub.
The Central Regional Police PRO, DSP Irene Serwaa Oppong said someone had reported Funny Face for causing a disturbance in a bar.
She stated that their investigations reveal the actor, born Benson Oduro Boateng, had gone to the bar where a misunderstanding ensued between him and the owner.
Although the two were separated, Funny Face went home, returned with a gun and fired warning shots.
Adom News’ Kofi Adjei who was in court reported that Funny Face first pleaded guilty to unlawfully discharging a firearm in a public place.

However, the judged noticed some incoherence in Funny Face’s account of events thus asked the actor if he was sound of mind.
Funny Face claimed that the slaps he had taken during his arrest affected him, so, he has some challenges mentally.
Kofi Adjei reported that the judge asked the police to take him to the hospital and seize his gun.
He also ruled that Funny Face should not be allowed to drive for the next two weeks.
