A Magistrate Court at Wenchi in the Bono region has remanded six suspects for allegedly kidnapping a fetish priest at Badu in the Tain District.
The suspects will reappear in court on September 11, 2019.
Wenchi Divisional Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police Sebastian Atsu Wemega told court reporters that the suspects will be remanded into police custody.
Prosecution told the court on Thursday that investigations are ongoing and therefore prayed the court adjourned the case.
The court presided over by Her Worship Vivian L. Yamusa consequently adjourned the case to the said date.
The victim, who is also being investigated for alleged fraud was also granted bail.
ACP Atsu Wemega told reporters that the police received information on Tuesday August 27, 2019 that a vehicle refused to stop at a police barrier at Akrobe and so it was on a lookout for the vehicle to ascertain why it did not stop at the barrier as directed.
“They were looking out for the vehicle until they got the vehicle around Koase when going to Nkosia. So they intercepted the car and found six people on board with the fetish priest so they tried to find out where they were going to but the response they had was not convincing so they brought them to the police station.
“So it was at the police that they realised that an information had come from Badu concerning the kidnapping”, the Police Chief said in an interview.
