An Accra Magistrate’s Court yesterday adjourned to October 13, the case involving Greggory Afoko and two others for allegedly killing Adam Mahama, the Upper East Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
This followed a submission by the prosecution that they had almost completed their investigations into the matter but were yet to forward the docket to the Attorney-General’s Department for advice and subsequent action.
The court, presided over by Worlanyo Kotoku, upheld the prosecution’s submission and adjourned the case.
The accused persons were present in court amidst heavy security.
At the hearing on September 8, the premises of the court was gripped with fear and panic and the court was forced to adjourn for fear of a possible attack by the family of the late Adam Mahama.
That was after the investigator in the case, Inspector Nkrumah, had told the court, in the absence of the prosecutor, that they had picked information that the Adam’s family members wanted to attack the accused, Afoko, and suggested that a slight delay could lead to chaos.
Consequently, the court presided over by Worlanyo Kotoku, adjourned the case to yesterday in the absence of the prosecutor.
Meanwhile, The Ghanaian Times had discovered that some sympathisers of the late Adam Mahama had massed up at the premises of the Cocoa Affairs Court in a bid to locate the court trying the accused (Gregory Afoko), giving credence to the earlier intelligence picked by the police that a group was planning to attack the accused.
