The Accra Magistrate’s Court, presided over by Mr Kotoku Worlanyo on Wednesday again refused bail for Gregory Afoko, the man charged with the murder of the Upper East Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Adams Mahama.
The court however, asked counsel for the accused to make available a ruling of the High Court prior to either granting or refusing him bail.
Counsel for Afoko, prior to this development, expressed frustration at the snail pace of the trial and accused the state of showing little interest in the case.
Mr Israel Ackaah, lead counsel for Afoko, accused the police of consistently failing to conduct investigations into the case and requested for adjournments, an act he advised the court not to tolerate.
However, the court asked counsel to make available to the court the ruling of the High Court prior to either granting or refusing bail to the accused and adjourned hearing to December 16, 2015.
Afoko and an accomplice, Asabke Alangdi, who is on the run, have been charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit crime and murder.
A third accomplice, Musa Issa, was granted bail after the A-G had advised that there was not enough evidence to charge him.
