Nima-Mamobi youth gang clashes: 8 granted bail

An Accra Circuit court yesterday granted eight out of the 12 suspects, arraigned in connection with the Nima-Mamobi youth gang violence, a GH¢80,000 bail with two sureties each.
The suspects, Atarouwa Bassam; Abdul Mumuni Gariba; Abdul Gafaru Mahama; Mohammed Saabi Barinu; Bashiru Ganir; Illiasu Salim; Issah Seidu and Ibrahim Moro are also to report to the police twice every week.
The charge sheet has also been amended by prosecution, led by Chief Inspector Dennis Terkpetey, to include another suspect, Farouk Dawda, who was recently arrested.
According to the new charge sheet, the suspects are being charged with conspiracy to riot with weapons, rioting with weapons and causing harm.
They however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Two others, including the newly-arrested suspect Farouk Dawda aka Omoni and Aziz Suleman were denied bail, after the prosecution indicated that granting them bail would interfere with investigations.
The two are facing the same charges as the 8 and have also pleaded not guilty.
All suspects are to reappear before the court on Tuesday, February 15, 2022.
However, the leaders of the two gangs involved in the violence are still on the run.
It is recalled, that violence erupted at Nima and Mamobi on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 when two rival groups led respectively by Kumordzi, alias Ibrahim Hussein; and Bombom, alias Ali Awudu, clashed.
Meanwhile, the police administration has set aside a GH¢20,000 reward for information that will lead to the arrest of leaders of the two rival gangs.
