Armed policemen ‘invade’ court premises as Dr. Opuni appears in court


The premises of the Accra High Court where Former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD),Dr Stephen Opuni, makes his first appearance for allegedly causing financial loss to the state, have been taken over by heavily armed police personnel.

Our court reporter, Godfred Taanam reports the presence of heavily armed police officers who have been positioned at vantage points within the premises of the court complex, a situation he describes as unusual. According to him, on a normal day at the court complex, private security officials are stationed there.

“Uniformed men can be seen at the main gates, inside the premises of the court building and at the corridors of the court rooms,” he said.

Dr. Stephen Opuni, former CEO of COCOBOD also gathers that all seats in the court room where the former COCOBOD  Chief Executive Officer will be  tried have been occupied and observers standing have been directed by the police CID to walk out of the court.

Dr Opuni, businessman Seidu Agongo and AgriCult Ghana Company Limited, are facing 27 charges of willfully causing financial loss of GHS217million to the state, through three separate fertiliser supply contracts between 2014 and 2016.
