Opambour Agya Badu Nkansah, the second accused person in connection with the murder of Professor Yaw Benneh, is scheduled to receive a “particular treatment at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital on November 25, 2020”, the prosecution has told the court.

 

At the last court date, lawyer for the accused persons, Emmanuel Larbi, demanded from the court for his client to be transferred to a different health facility.

This was because, his client, who was in critical condition at the Police hospital, was not being properly taken care of. But the prosecution denied that assertion.

The court, presided over by Her Worship, Ama Adomah Kwakye, of the Kaneshie District Court, prior to adjourning the case, asked the prosecution to produce a medical report of him if he was not going to be brought to court.

In court on Wednesday, when the case was called, the accused persons were again absent.

Inspector Teye-Okuffo, the prosecutor, told the court that the said accused person was still undergoing treatment.

According to the prosecutor, the second accused person is scheduled to receive “a particular treatment at Korle-Bu on November 25 and the case investigator is working on that.”

He told the court that, the accused person is responding to treatment and “we pray that the court gives us a date beyond November 25, so that the accused person can be brought to court or in his absence a medical report would be brought to the court as ordered by the court.”

The mother of the accused person corroborated the point of prosecution and told the court that her son is responding to treatment.

The case has been adjourned to December 8, 2020, a date after the December 7 General Election.
