The Asokwa District Court in the Ashanti Region presided over by her worship Akua Adu Boahen has again adjourned hearing of the murder case involving three suspects linked to the death of Ibrahim Mohammed, aka Kaaka to August 12.
This is to allow the police to gather more evidence for prosecution.
Chief Superintendent Kofi Blagodzi at the second hearing on Thursday, July 22, 2021, prayed the court for another two weeks to close up investigations.
“We pray that my lord remand the suspects for another two weeks, by that we can adequately inform the court about our position” the police judicial prosecutor has said.
Her worship Akua Adu Boahen urged the police to fast-track their investigation so the court can decide on the three suspects.
The suspects, Fiseini Alhassan, Ibrahim Issaka, and Iddi Mohammed are facing charges of conspiracy to commit crime and murder.
For the first time, one of the accused persons, Iddi Mohammed had a legal representation but his plea was not taken.
The Asokwa court was also fortified with heavily armed police officers.
Kaaka, whose death has attracted national attention was attacked on June 28 sparking a community demonstration on June 29th. An escalation of his death led to the constitution of a three-member ministerial committee to probe the Ejura violence.
Justice George Kingsley Koomson’s committee has since ended its probing waiting for findings to be made public.
