Two suspects linked to the murder of Ejura-based social media activist Ibrahim Mohammed, popularly called Kaaka, were on Thursday (10 March), granted bail by a High Court after spending months in prison custody.
Fuseini Alhassan and Ibrahim Issaka were granted bail to the tune of seventy thousand Ghana Cedis with two sureties each, one to be justified. Despite being granted bail, the two are yet to regain their freedom because they are yet to meet the bail bond, myjoyonline.com reported.
However, a third suspect, Idi Mohammed, who is facing court for alleged involvement in his brother’s death, is in prison custody.
Ibrahim Issaka, also known as Anyars, a ticket seller and Fuseini Alhassan, a butcher, were arrested after some irate youth of Ejura attacked them following the death of social media activist, Kaaka Macho after 3-days of admission at the Komfo Anokye Hospital.
The High Court decision comes at a time family of the late activist expressed frustrations over the delays in adjudication of the case at the Asokwa District Court.
The case has been adjourned on several occasions, with the latest on March 8, 2022 as accused persons and prosecutors failed to show up in court.
The court subsequently adjourned the hearing to March 22, 2022.
“The family is not taking it easy at all because of the series of adjournments. We have been following the case.
“This case, the 14th time we have been in court; taking into consideration the kind of stress, the kind of psychological problem we have been going through as a result of the loss of a brother and one being arrested,” Mr. Rabbiu Mohammed, a family spokesperson told JoyNews.
Reacting to the latest development, the family of Iddi Mohammed expressed shock over the bail granted the two accused persons.
The family awaits advice from their lawyers on the next line of action.
