A Kumasi Circuit Court has granted a GHC100,000 bail to Gabriel Agah, a known communicator with the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), facing the charges of defrauding by pretence.
Agah, an unemployed is said to have used the name of the former President John Mahama to defraud Nana Opoku Agyemang to the tune of GHC150,000.
The suspect who pleaded not guilty to the charges was remanded by the court during his first appearance in December last year.
He was, however, admitted to bail with three sureties, one to be justified with a landed property, the court ordered during a second hearing on Wednesday, 5 January 2022.
This was after his lawyers pushed for his release after spending nearly two weeks in police custody.
The case has since been adjourned to 2 February 2022, to allow the police to make some disclosures as part of the prosecution.
