A High Court has granted bail to Idi Mohammed, elder brother of late Ejura-based social media activist, Ibrahim Mohammed aka Kaaka.
This was after his lawyers filed a request at the Justice Daniel Obeng’s court in Kumasi, after spending months in prison custody.
The court presided over by Justice Daniel Obeng on Thursday admitted the to a ¢100,000 bail with two sureties resident in Kumasi.
The court also ordered that the suspect reports himself to the CID every Monday and also frequent the Asokwa Magistrate Court where the substantive case is being heard.
Loud silence disturbing
Kaaka’s mother Mariam Yakubu was in court for the first time to solidarize with her son. She is concerned about the loud silence of institutions that are yet to take action, as the family pushes for justice for their late son.
“We are grateful and happy today that bail has been granted to our brother. We will see to it that all the process and bail condition is satisfied so that our brother’s liberty will be given to him. We are still interested to see the end of the case to ensure that justice is served to Kaaka,” Mariam, 68, spoke to the media through a family spokesperson Nafiu Mohammed.
“To be frank I can tell you that almost all the institutions are yet to take action on our petition including parliament. Even the office of the chief Imam has not communicated to our family and this is disturbing”, Nafiu said.
Two other suspects, Fuseini Alhassan and Ibrahim Issaka have also been granted bail to the tune of seventy thousand Ghana Cedis with two sureties each after spending months in custody.
The death of Kaaka sparked clashes, leading to the killing of two others in the community.
