DRAMA UNFOLDED at the Asokwa Circuit Court in Kumasi on Wednesday when the Suame Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Razak Koampa Avoliya, appeared in court.
The NDC official was in court on a charge of ‘Offensive Conduct’, having been apprehended for allegedly charging his party members to ‘Kill for power in 2024’ if it becomes necessary.
Interestingly, before Koampa Avoliya and his lawyers appeared in the court room, a sizable number of enthusiastic-looking NDC members from all over Kumasi, have flooded the court premises.
The NDC members, who were made up of mostly young and energetic men, marched on the court compound as, they in unison, sang the party’s revolutionary songs in protest.
According to them, the arrest of Suame NDC Youth Organizer was politically motivated therefor they were expecting the noble court to throw away the case and set Koampa Avoliya free.
Despite their threats and protests, the charged NDC members could not get close to the court gate, which was being protected by scores of armed policemen.
Meanwhile, the court, granted the wish of the prosecution team as it remanded Koampa Avoliya into police custody to reappear before the same court on Tuesday, February 14, 2023, which is the Valentine’s Day.
Prior to that, lawyers for the Suame NDC youth organizer had argued that their client was ready to assist police investigators so he should be granted bail, but the court decided otherwise and remanded him.
