Gregory Afoko, the man accused in 2015 of the murder of Alhaji Adams Mahama, the then Upper East Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has been hospitalized.
This was made known by the prosecutor in the trial of Afoko and his alleged accomplice, Asabke Alangdi, at the Accra High Court on Monday, November 9, 2020.
Ms. Marina Appiah Oppong, a Chief State Attorney, said the prosecution was ready to call its first witness to testify but could not do so because Afoko was unavailable.
“The investigator informed me that Afoko has been taken ill and is receiving medical attention,” she said.
In view of that, the court presided over by Justice Afua Merley Wood, a justice of the Court of Appeal sitting as a High Court judge, adjourned the trial to November 24, 2020.
This is not the first time Afoko has been reported ill and hospitalized since he was remanded more than four years ago.
His lawyers had been complaining that he has a recurring condition.
