The Konongo Magistrate Court has adjourned the case, involving five students of Konongo Odumase Senior High School (SHS) alleged to have stabbed their colleague to death, to November 29, this year.
The court during the last hearing, directed that a representative of the Attorney-General’s (A-G) Department should be in court the next adjourned date so that the case could be transferred to the High Court.
No representative of the A-G Department, however, showed up in court on Monday, and the Presiding Magistrate, Mrs Joyce Bamfo, adjourned the case to November 29.
The court also remanded all the five suspects to a Juvenile Detention Centre to reappear on November 29.
The five students are standing trial for their alleged involvement in the murder of Larhan Sam-una, a first-year student of Konongo Odumase SHS, who was stabbed on November 5, this year.
The key suspect, Emmanuel Osei Frimpong, together with the other accomplices, embarked on a bullying spree in a dormitory on campus after preps, according to the police.
After molesting some first-year students, the suspects attempted to drag one student away for further maltreatment, but Sam-una prevent them from taking away his colleague.
This infuriated Frimpong and he stabbed Sam-una with a kitchen knife, and the victim who, bled profusely, was pronounced dead at the Konongo-Odumase Government Hospital where he was rushed for medical attention. – GNA
