A Kumasi High Court has granted bail to three persons accused of killing a member of pro-NDC militia group, the Hawks.
Dauda Ibrahim, alias Wayo, 40, Abdul Ganiu, 37, Samuel Agyin alias Rock- 32 who are standing trial at the Asokwa District Court, were denied bail for their alleged involvement in the shooting incident at the regional office of the party, which led to death of one person.
The three turned themselves in days after police declared them and nine others wanted, following killing of Abdul Wasiw Iddrisou.
Last week, Suleman Fussein, who was also declared wanted along the suspects by the police, was stabbed in his residence at Abirem Old Town by motor riding youngmen. He has since been on admission at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
But their counsel appealed against the lower court decision at the Kumasi High Court.
They will have to meet bail condition of GH₵100,000 with two sureties to justify and report themselves to police once every month.
Police declared some ‘wanted’members of Hawks wanted
Tuesday’s appearance was their second appearance after they first appeared before the High court on April 4, where their pleas were taken.
Their Counsel, Evans Amankwaa, maintained the innocence of the three accused persons and pleaded with the court to grant them bail.
He commended police as well as the judiciary especially the Attorney-General’s Department for upholding justice.
“We thank the Ghana Police Service for their co-operation. We thank the Attorney-General for their co-operation and we thank the judicial system for upholding justice. I’m happy as a lawyer today in this country that, at the end of the day we have been able to see justice being done to people who are innocent.”
Meanwhile, family of victim, Wasiw Iddrisou who were not at the High Court, want police to intensify efforts to arrest some eight other suspects who are at large.
The suspects will be back at the District Court on May 21.
