Court sets July 10 to rule on Afoko’s bail application

An Accra Magistrate Court on Tuesday, July 7 adjourned ruling on a bail application filed by counsel for Gregory Afoko to Friday, July 10.

The Court had scheduled Tuesday, July 7 to rule on the bail application filed by Afoko’s lawyer Stephen Ampah Korsah.  

According to the counsel, the continuous detention of his client is illegal since no evidence of murder has been so far found against him.

But Justice Worlanyo Kotoku adjured parties in the case to bear with the court as the ruling was not ready.

Already, the remanded suspects have complained of discomfiture in police custody.

While Gregory Afoko, a brother to New Patriotic Party’s National Chairman Paul Afoko, complained to the court about ill-health, Mussah Issah said he was not enjoying the food served him.

The Court, therefore, called for immediate medical care for Afoko while the investigator explained that family relations of Issah should be told to change the meal for the second suspect.

The two are standing trial for allegedly murdering the Upper East Chairman of the NPP, Adams Mahama.

He was acid-attacked on May 20 but died a few hours later while on admission at the Bolgatanga Regional Hospital.

He was buried on Saturday, May 23.
