4 persons arrested in connection to Kasoa disturbance granted bail

A Cape Coast Circuit Court has granted the four suspects who were arrested in connection to the disturbance at a voters’ registration in Kasoa bail.

The Court presided by Dorinda Smith Arthur granted them bail to the tune of ¢30,000 each with two sureties.

And for the sureties, one must be a government worker whose net salary is ¢2000.

The prosecution charged the culprits, Sulley Razak, Majeed Amadu, Suleman Yusuf, and Razak Musa with conspiracy to commit the crime, causing unlawful damage to the three motorbikes and discharge of firearms in a public place without authority.

But the accused pleaded not guilty to all three charges.

Lawyer for the accused persons, Amponsah Dadzie then pleaded for bail which was subsequently granted by the court.

The case has been adjourned to Tuesday, August 18,  2020, for a case management conference.

However, the suspects are to report to the Kasoa Police station every Tuesday until the case is called.

On Monday, July 20, officials of the Electoral Commission were forced to closed down the Step to Christ registration centre in the Awutu Senya East constituency after gun-wielding men stormed the premises.

According to eyewitnesses the men numbering at least 15 arrived at the centre around 8 am and tried to sack some prospective voters.

This resulted in a scuffle that saw gunshots fired and three motorbikes burnt.
