The Kumasi High Court has granted bail to two of the suspects standing trial for their alleged involvement in the death of social activist at Ejura, Ibrahim Muhammed, popularly known as Kaaka.
The two, Fuseni Alhassan and Ibrahim Issaka, have been granted bail to the tune of seventy thousand Ghana cedis each with two sureties each, with one to be justified.
This was after the lawyer for the two persons moved from the Asokwa District Court where the substantive matter is being heard, to the Kumasi High Court to apply for bail for his clients.
Elder brother of Kaaka, Iddi Mohammed, who is in custody for his alleged involvement in his brother’s death, is however still in police custody.
Kaaka died on 28th June, 2021 after he was allegedly attacked in front of his house at Ejura on 26th June, 2021.
Following the death, Fuseni Alhassan and Ibrahim Issaka were arrested, as Iddi Mohammed was subsequently arrested as well.
They have been in police custody since then.
The head of Ashanti Regional Legal and Prosecutions, Chief Superintendent Kofi Blagodzi who spoke to Citi News after the court granted the two suspects bail, however said the two would be required to appear at the Asokwa District Court on the next adjourned date (22nd March, 2022) for the substantive matter to be heard.
