Afoko’s bail application dismissed

Gregory Afoko, the key suspect in the murder of the Upper East Region Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has been denied bail.

Counsel for Gregory, Stephen Ampah Korsah, had requested bail for his client with the pretext that he has been unlawfully held in police custody as no evidence has yet been found against him as regards the death of Alhaji Adams Mahama.

Justice Worlanyo Kotoku last Tuesday adjourned ruling on the bail application, adducing that it was not ready.

On Friday, July 10 he dismissed the application, charging the chief accused into further custody.

Justice Kotoku, however, granted bail to the third accused, Issah Musah to the tune of GH¢20,000 with four sureties, none to be justified.

Musah is said to have bought the acid that was used in perpetrating the act on Wednesday, May 20 in Bolgatanga.

The second accused, Asabki Alangdi, is on the run but on the wanted list of Interpol.
