Alhaji Grusah Granted Bail

Alhaji GrunsahA Circuit Court in Accra on Monday admitted Alhaji Abdul Karim Grusah, owner of King Failsal Football Club, to bail, in the sum of GH¢ 20,000 with two sureties.

This was after he  appeared before the court following a bench warrant to effect his arrest. Alhaji Grusah stood surety for Mohammed Abdulai, a suspect who was nabbed by the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit of the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service, but could not be traced by the police.

Mr. Edward Anokye, counsel for Alhaji Grusah, told the court that the suspect was on a farm at Sankore in the Eastern Region.

Counsel pleaded with the court to give Alhaji Grusah ample time to produce Abdulai in court. Applying for bail for Alhaji Grunsah, Mr. Anokye indicated that his client had fixed places of abode in Kumasi and Accra and he (Alhaji Grusah) came to court as soon as he was invited by the police.

Defence counsel further stated that Alhaji Grusah was capable of producing Abdulai, adding, he (Alhaji Grusah) has sureties who are independent and of sufficient means to execute his bail.

The court, after considering the submissions, granted Alhaji Grusah bail, and adjourned the case to December 5.
On November 7, this year, Police Detective Inspector Isaac Agbemehia moved an application of Forfeiture of recognisance and sought for bench warrant before the court, presided over by Ms. Helen Amoah.

The police said they could not trace Abdulai, who was to appear in court. “Efforts of the surety (Alhaji Grusah) to produce the suspect in Court had failed,” the Police declared.

On April 23, this year, Abdulai was granted police inquiry bail in the sum of GH¢20,000, which Alhaji Grusah signed for him.

However, the police contend that they were unable to trace the suspect, hence filed the application in court to enable Alhaji Grusah to produce him.
