An Accra magistrate court has set August 11, 2015 for ruling on a bail application for the accused persons alleged to have murdered the Upper East regional chairman of the NPP Adams Mahama.

The judge hearing the case, Justice Ken A. Okwabi, however adjourned to Tuesday August 11, because the docket for Afoko’s bail application could not be found.

He ordered for the immediate retrieval of the document.

In the initial hearing of the bail application, the court was unable to hear the case because the state attorneys expected to have been in court to respond to the motion were absent due to their strike action.

The two, Gregory Afoko who has been charged with murder and Musah Issah who is also facing charges of abetment of murder have been in police custody since their arrest in May 2015.

Meanwhile, it has emerged that the attire of Gregory Afoko, one of the two persons standing trial over the murder of Adams Mahama, Upper East regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), which was retrieved by the Police, contained acid.

According to the Attorney General (AG), other materials such as the gallon containing the sulphuric acid, the burnt clothing of the deceased, substances retrieved from his vehicle, all contained the same sulphuric acid.

This was contained in a 28-paragraph affidavit in opposition to the application for bail filed at the court by lawyers for Gregory.

It said the “clothing of the applicant (Gregory) which was retrieved and sent for forensic examination, disclosed that the clothing was laced with sulphuric acid.”

The affidavit, filed at the Accra Human Rights Court on July 28, 2015, further disclosed that the final report on the wound on Gregory’s leg was yet to be released.

It would be recalled that Adams Mahama was attacked with acid on his way home at night and died extensive burns the morning after the attack.
